A broad representation of our collective culture, the latest issue of TSJ brings a dose of big-wave perspective, a riff on an Ecuadorian balsa encampment, a conversation with Buff and Momi, a “vacation” to the Gold Coast, and even some musings on rope. Yes, rope. At the front of the book Love Shacks looks remarkably like Teahupoo, the shortboard is reborn, Jeff Divine makes the case for why James Jones is the best surfer he ever saw, and once again, it’s time to Spin the Globe. Out the back you’ll find a eulogy for the late Sebastian Inlet, a smattering of reviews, and Pez goes Surfing Around. All told, there’s something for everybody in this offering.
