Turn and Go!

Turn and Go! reprises 50 years of wave riding in the author’s trademark, surf-informed style. Vivid and thought provoking, this new volume speaks to the lasting value of the surfing act at a time when the activity would do well to check its compass. Few, save the author, have five decades of publication from which to draw. Fewer still had access to surfing’s greatest minds: the riders, the shapers, the designers. Turn and Go! assembles them all for your enjoyment and benefit. We are especially pleased to present this collection of work from our cofounder and original editor.

About the Author

Born in Los Angeles in 1941, Pezman began surfing in 1958 in Orange County and writing for International Surfing magazine in 1968. He became editor at Surfer magazine in 1969, where he was promoted to publisher after six months, a position he maintained until 1991. In 1992, along with his wife, Debbee, he launched The Surfer’s Journal. After 31 years of continuous publication, it carries on as one of the few printed surf magazines proudly documenting the pursuits’s chain of custody. 

Essays, profiles, interviews, reporting, and other musings from five decades in surf publishing.

Pre-Order

For the most part a ridden wave is a silent occurrence, but for the sound of the wave breaking. All the dynamics disappear, quickly absorbed into the ocean’s movements, and there is no lasting recollection of what occurred except in the mind of those who saw it happen. If expressing what I think of it all provokes the reader to consider their own point of view—or better yet, form a new one—I would consider that a worthy result.
