With this, the third issue of SURFER Magazine ever, founder and publisher John Severson added Letters to the Editor and Contest and Club News, two features that have stood the test of time.
Content includes early features on big-wave riding in Peru and at Sunset Beach. Rick Griffin also makes his debut with Big Wednesday,
which appears on the back cover, and Murphy and the Surfing Contest.
Plus "Windansea Walls" and "Toes on the Nose." This issue includes lots of classic period ads by Yater, Con, Wardy, Ole, Gordie, Dave Sweet, Bing, Dewey Weber, and Jacobs.
