I follow lots (and lots) of surfing accounts on Instagram. Lots. Many of these are focused on and run by women, but I also follow lots of other general surf sites and magazines. Most of the general sites follow the usual pattern of not including much content about women, which is annoying and always stands out to me. Show More Summary
While reading Matt Warshaw’s plea for the $30,000 he needs to keep the Encyclopedia of Surfing up and running we were reminded of an old National Lampoon magazine cover. You know, the one with the cute dog with a gun to it’s head and the words “If you don’t buy this magazine, we’ll kill this […]
This story was produced in partnership with our friends at Ford. According to SUP Magazine, the roots of standup paddling are a little fuzzy — give some credit to the ancient Polynesians, give some to Laird Hamilton, Dave Kalama, and...Show More Summary

I used to read a magazine called CARtoons that was full of hot rod art reminiscent of Ed "Big Daddy" Roth's high octane illustrations from the 60s, and I've always wondered what those cars would look like in real life. After watching...Show More Summary
While hanging out at a surf spot in Bali, Indonesia, Stab Magazine and a group of Volcom surfers decided to tow a 100ft. plastic dock to the sea. We don’t know if it made their day easier, but it seemed to make surfing more fun. And dangerous.

This article was originally published by our friends at SUP Magazine. My first board was a clunker. Plain and simple. It was an 11-foot hand-me-down from the early days of our sport. It wasn’t fast, it didn’t turn easily and it was very heavy. Show More Summary

John Severson, who led the world the joys of playing on waves as the founder of Surfer Magazine, died Friday
When the first issue of the Surfer rolled off the press in 1960, it looked more like a hastily thrown together yearbook than the glossy magazine it would become. There were black-and-white photos of towering waves with surfers zipping across their glassy faces, cartoons, sketches, a cluster of...
