Caveman-squatting across the premier issue of volume 23, Noa Deane—son of Coolangatta cutback master Wayne Deane—glides through his umpteenth sandbar spinner with a mix of timeless style and contemporary equipment. Between the flaps, more than a hundred pages of fresh surfing perspectives follow, including the untold stories of ’70s Thai Stick smugglers and the original surfboard foam inventors; the trade secrets of Indo boat captains; plus wave-riding adventures through Salina Cruz, Rottnest Island, Morocco, and remote Tasmania.
