Vintage Collectibles - Magazines - Surfer Magazine - 1980's


Dane Kealoha has probably logged more tube time in one North Shore season than most of us will enjoy in our entire lifetime. Here, he finds the slot at Off-the-Wall. Todd Martin gets "Mug of the Month." Paul Holmes pens "The Year in Review: People, Spots, and Spectacular Swells that Kept Surfing Very Much Alive During Nineteen Hundred and Eighty Five." Also includes a Barton Lynch interview, a North Shore pictorial, and coverage of the 1985 Stubbies Pro. Nathan Pratt examines "The Future of Surfing?" and Hurricane Gloria delivers some juice to the East Coast. Plus "The Surfer Star: Because Waterlogged Minds Want to Know," a hilarious tabloid that pokes fun at pro surfers. Finally, Harry Hodge describes life with the reclusive Mickey Dora in France. Though Dora is not quoted here, it does include a photo of him surfing double overhead French beachbreak perfection on a shortboard! This magazine is in very good or Betty-plus condition, about 85 percent of mint. Very light cover and spine wear with no pulling at staples. No torn or missing pages and no cutouts.
