On the cover: “Water is the New Black,” 18×24-inch screen print by Shepard Fairey. Renderings inside the book frame the combat and surf photography of photojournalist Nic Bothma, sketch in the dimensions of Skip Frye’s personal quiver, and go horseback on an expedition through the wilds of Chile. Long reads by Kimball Taylor (on the current state of bodyboarding) and Jamie Brisick (with a haunting essay on love, death, and Brazilian shore-pound) add depth and shading.
