Vintage Collectibles - Magazines - Surfer Magazine - 1970's


The late great Mark Foo gets deep in a Hawaiian tube. Foo lost his life while surfing Maverick's, a big-wave spot in Half Moon Bay. His tragic story is told in Riding Giants, a recent motion picture by Stacy Peralta. This packed issue includes an Australia travel feature, "Ten Years After the Shortboard Revolution" by Paul Gross and SURFER staff photographers, "Knee Spree," "A Step Further" by Don Balch, a Northern Florida pictorial, and "Waves," a beautiful color pictorial featuring empty waves without surfers. Plus "LNG: The Rape of the Ranch" by Woody Woodworth and Tom Kampas, "Who's Phil Edwards, Part II" by Dr. Dorian Paskowitz, and Extra, which unveils a standing wave pool designed by Austrian Professor Ing Otto Frenzl.
