Vintage Collectibles - Magazines - Surfer Magazine - 1970's
This sparkly Tom Stone Pipeline cover shot beckons readers to "A Portfolio of Surfer and Waves Getting it On," a seemingly endless array of timeless, classic images from Hawaii and California. You'll laugh at "Smiling Phases," an interesting before and after of surfing celebrity mug shots -- before and after the shortboard revolution. Suddenly short hair and clean shaven is out, long hair and facial hair is in. Basically lots of references to sex, drugs, and rock-n-roll in this issue...says so right on the cover! Plus art by R. Crumb and Rick Griffin. Take a trip with Bob Cooper to England, Duke Contest coverage by Drew Kampion, surf poetry, and more.
We rate this a Betty-plus -- about 85 percent of mint. Subscription card is intact. Very light cover wear as shown in scan. Corners and spine are in very good condition...light wear only with no splitting of spine. Minor pulling at staples. No torn or missing pages and no cutouts.
Packaged in an archival-quality clear plastic sleeve with an acid-free mat backing board.
