SURFER MAGAZINE VOLUME 24, NO. 5 (1983)

After some dismal Katin Pro-Am coverage from Huntington Beach, "Whatever Happened to Big-Wave Riding" examines the trend away from "riding giants" toward small-wave performance surfing. Top experts speak out, including Shaun Tomson, Peter Cole, Ace Cool, Gerry Lopez, James Jones, Clyde Aikau, Ken Bradshaw, and others. A "Hot" cover feature focuses on action, with neon colors abound. Next, a Tom Carroll/Tom Curren profile asks "Which One Will Be Top Cat Next Year?" And "Japan Steps Out" serves up some epic rivermouth barrels while enjoying a surfing industry boon. Plus Design Forum and "Maliwu: Place Where the Surf Sounds Loudly," a fictional piece by Denny Aaberg.
