One-hundred-and-twenty-six pages of pure editorial. The guts of 23.5 are centered around a sprawling analysis of the Fletcher and Hoffman clan, with characters ranging from Christian to Flippy, Joyce to Dibi, and generational stories that span surfing’s entire modern age. Space is also reserved for a road-and-boat trip through the nether regions of Chile, and a tonally rich portfolio of Indian Ocean photography from wilding shooter Tom Hawkins.
