Vintage Collectibles - Magazines - Surfer Magazine - 1980's


Mike Latronic goes for a colorful off-the-lip at Velzyland on the North Shore.

Take in a Tom Blake feature titled "Beyond the Horizon." Here's one story that's right up our alley: "Surf Culture in the Shopping Mall." Tom Curren and Frieda Zamba win top honors (ho hum) for the fifth consecutive year in the 18th Annual SURFER Poll Awards. Nat Young offers a "Tribal Challenge," a call for "cleaner water, preservation of surf history, and better communication within the ranks." An "On Exhibit" pictorial offers key action from Seaside Reef, Pipeline, V-land, and Malibu. Drew Kampion examines "Waves From the Inside Out," a rather scientific piece with fantastic three-dimensional artwork by Phil Roberts. Richie Collins edges out Tom Curren during the '89 Op Pro at Huntington Beach. Plus a Bryce Ellis profile and Tahiti travel adventure with high-flying Christian Fletcher and top SURFER lensman Don King.

This magazine is in very good or Betty-plus condition, about 85 percent of mint. Very light cover and spine wear. No torn or missing pages and no cutouts.
