On the cover: What happens along a patch of reef when you mix decades-spanning family ties and countless hours in the water? Effortless positioning on any wave you want. Mason Ho, Rocky Point. The interior of 28.5 explores the North Shore’s culture of youthful goading in heavy surf, dodges gun-toting property owners in search for slabs in New England, and relays the foreign scams and scandals of Nat Young and Miki Dora. Profiles of twin-fin artist Torren Martyn, tattooer Ben Grillo, and cross-stepper Josie Prendergast add personal touches.
