This wonderful surf publication coming out of France is the brainchild of Olivier Talbot and Bertrand Trichet. It’s filled with an eclectic mix of surf related topics from cold water preparedness to the notion of a quiver of one. We love the compact size, printing on uncoated paper, and the retro ‘80s layout.

We offer an alternative to the
thruster and contest mentality that dominates our sport. We choose
to celebrate surfing for what it is:
a joyful union between the surfer
and the ocean. Our mission is to
give voice to those people — surfers, shapers, writers, artists, filmmakers, and photographers — who quietly
keep surf culture alive.
