The Surfers Journal Issue 27.4

On the cover: Reno Abellira, Dick Brewer, Gerry Lopez, April 1969, Oahu. “We were fueled up with some good smoke and great company,” says photographer David Darling. “When Reno spotted the Makiki water-pump station, we off-loaded our boards and burned through some yoga poses. Next, we stopped in the woods, climbed some trees, and laid out the boards in the groundcover.” Inside the book, features scan from Indonesian shamans, to Art Brewer’s imagery of the quick and the dead, to the barren surrealism of the South Australian surfscape.
