This landmark Murphy issue brings back a flood of memories!
Lots of classic artwork throughout by SURFER Founder John Severson and a very talented young cartoonist by the name of Rick Griffin. (His Murphy and the Marines, Part III
is included here.) Also includes pictorials featuring Sunset Beach, Australia, San Diego, and New Zealand. Check out the ad for Severson's Going My Wave
on page 5! Plus period ads by Con, Hannon Surfboards, Joe Quigg, Wardy, Gordie, Olympic Surfboards, Hobie, Dave Sweet, Dewey Weber, G & S, and O'Neill's Surf Shop (before it was O'Neill's!).
This issue is in very good condition, at least 85 percent of mint. Spine is just starting to split at top and bottom edge. Very minor cover stains as shown in scan. No pulling at staples and no staple rust. Very light cover and spine wear overall. Complete and intact with no torn or missing pages and no cutouts. Subscription card is also intact.
