SURFING VOLUME 10, NO. 2 (1974)

In 1974 Lopez Publications dropped "International" from their name to create "Surfing Magazine," which has become a household name in surf mags and SURFER's primary competitor for the last 30 years. This publication should not be confused with "Petersen's Surfing," which thrived in the 1960s.

Drew Kampion pens "Faster and Faster: The Country, the Contests, and the Last Secret Spot on the North Shore." Standouts include Bobby Jones, Jeff Hakman, Reno Abellira, and Tom Stone. Top photog Warren Bolster captures some "California Moments." Plus Puerto Rico and El Salvador travel features and a Gerry Lopez profile, also by Kampion.

This issue is in very good or Betty condition, about 80 percent of mint. Some rubbing on left edge of front cover as shown in scan. Otherwise very light cover and spine wear with no 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.
