Subscribe to the Surfer’s Journal


A reader-supported surf publication founded in 1992, The Surfer’s Journal is vivid, authoritative, and independent. The goal of each 132-page bimonthly edition? A completely resolved composition. Balance. Color. Story. And purist surf energy from Page One to close-of-book.

California based, but globally relatable. Literary, but not academic. Timely, but not trendy. Authoritative, but not dry. Deluxe, but not fancy. Like an artfully- foiled shaped blank, you’ll know it when you turn it in the light.
