Vintage Collectibles - Magazines - Surfer Magazine - 1980's
Tom Carroll, clad in a polka-dotted helmet, eyes his exit point during the 1988 Marui Pipeline Masters. Without a doubt, the North Shore winter of 1988-89 belonged to Carroll.
This all-Hawaiian issue doesn't disappoint. Content includes extensive coverage of 1988 Hawaii Triple Crown. Though Barton Lynch captures the world title, he is overshadowed by Carroll in the big stuff. Derek Ho scores a perfect 10, as usual, during the Pipe Masters. A lengthy North Shore pictorial features Haleiwa, Rockpile, and Pipe. Reno Abellira pens a piece a surboard design for peak Hawaiian performance. Plus a Mark Occhilupo profile by Derek Hynd and "The Seven Mile Miracle: SURFER Magazine's Pictorial Encyclopedia of North Shore Surf Spots."
This issue 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.
