Enter the "First Annual End of the World Issue" featuring Rory Russell in a moment of intimacy with a Pupukea pocket. Content includes a Margo Godfrey interview, Merv Larson tearing up Rincon on a wave ski, while Thor Svenson interviews Jacques Cousteau and his oceanographic team about artificial reefs and creating the perfect wave. Mike Tabeling takes us to some solid-looking Cocoa Beach, Florida. A lengthy pictorial is followed by "Toward Unemcumbered Flight," a look at alternative forms of waveriding, namely bodyboarding and kneeboarding. Let's not forget a George Greenough portfolio titled "The Innermost Limits of Pure Fun."
We rate this a solid Betty-plus, or mint-minus, if you prefer -- about 85 percent of mint. Subscription card is intact. Very light cover wear as shown in scan. Cover is still shiny, like it just came off the press. Corners and spine are in very good condition...light wear only with no splitting of spine. No torn or missing pages and no cutouts.
Packaged in an archival-quality clear plastic sleeve with an acid-free mat backing board.
