As a reader-supported surf publication, The Surfer’s Journal is a truly unique periodical. It’s an independent take on the surfing experience with limited advertising, making each 140-page issue almost entirely editorial. We delve into topics that get little attention elsewhere, covering travel adventures, surfboard design, profiles of surfing’s most colorful subjects, and the choicest surf photography in every issue. Coupled with the premium construction, The Surfer’s Journal is a product that is peerless in its quality and content.

Members enjoy six issues a year as well as digital features, complete access to The Archives, a 20% discount on gear in The TSJ Company Store, and exclusive access to private film screenings.
