Vintage Collectibles - Magazines - Surfer Magazine - 1980's


When's the last time you saw Black's looking like this?!

Coverage of the biggest swell in decades to hit California makes this issue memorable. From Redondo Beach to Sandspit to Swift Street, the photos don't lie...20-foot waves up and down the California Coast for days on end. In Santa Cruz, the pinncacle rock at the base of the stairs at Steamer Lane was "reduced to a rounded stump."

Elsewhere, a beautiful "Outer Islands" pictorial features Honolua Bay and various unnamed haunts. Also includes "If a Surfboard Could Speak," "Sailing for Surf in the Eye of the Storm," and "New York: At Home in the Hamptons." A profile of West Side boy James "Bird" Mahelona wraps up this classic mag.

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. Subscription card is intact.

Packaged in an archival-quality clear plastic sleeve with an acid-free mat backing board.
