SURFER MAGAZINE VOLUME 27, NO. 8 (1986)

Tom Curren is crowned 1986 World Champion! It was decided at Bell's Beach, during the last leg of the Australian Grand Slam. "Quiet, nearly reticent, Tom Curren's statement is his surfing." Read the exclusive interview with Tommy shortly after he brought the title back to the United States. Elsewhere, "Tack Sharp, Rock Steady" is a Warren Bolster portfolio containing the quality images we've come to expect from one of SURFER's top lensman. Standouts include Mike Lucas, Owl Chapman, Jeff Johnston, and Johnny Boy Gomes, who nails an absolutely steamy Backdoor pit. Also includes a travel adventure to Japan featuring some quality rivermouth locales. Take "A Look Into the Longboard Shaping Room" with Bob Olson, Doug Haut, and Lance Carson. Plus a New Jersey pictorial and "Your First Summer," the first of a two-part instructional series by Nat Young for the new surfer. 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. Poster is intact. Packaged in an archival-quality clear plastic sleeve with an acid-free mat backing board. Click Here for a closer look.
