THE BEST STORYTELLING TO COME FROM THE GLOSSY PAGES OF SURFER MAGAZINE
That’s a wrap, folks. As 2017 quickly enters the rearview, it’s time to look back at the stories that defined the year in SURFER. For this volume, which is the 58th since the magazine’s founding by John Severson, we tackled everything from Tyler Wright’s sisterly motivation to win her first world title, to how sea level rise is affecting the Solomon Islands, to Australia’s blue-collar slab hunting culture and more. These were stories that we knew had to be told, and we’re fortunate enough to have a group of extremely talented and dedicated writers who could tell them in truly dynamic fashion. Click the titles below to read each piece in their entirety, kick your feet up and enjoy SURFER’s best features of 2017.
