SURFER MAGAZINE VOLUME 1, NO. 1 (1960)

THIS IS THE REAL DEAL!

"In this crowded world the surfer can still seek and find the perfect day, the perfect wave, and be alone with the surf and his thoughts."

This is the classic first SURFER Magazine published in 1960 by John Severson. Severson worked on the project while he was filming his 1960 surf adventure "Surf Fever" in Hawaii and California. It was subsequently reprinted in 1973 and 1985, for the Silver Anniversary Issue.

Content includes "Toes on the Nose," Surfing for Beginners, Rincon and Hammond's Reef pictorials, Mickey Munoz's famous quasimoto sequence, plus big Waimea and Sunset.
