Description

Is the lucky country running out of luck? We pulled Surfing World 417 together at a time when you had to seriously ask yourself the question. With the east coast underwater for much of summer – just two years after it had burned during the Black Summer fires – it felt like we were getting a glimpse into our future. Midnight Oil lyrics as prophecy. Mad Max as a documentary. Leadership has not only been absent, it’s felt like we’re being led back to the Stone Age.

So for SW417 we talk the state of the nation. We’ve got longform interviews with Peter Garrett, Otis Carey, Nikki Van Dijk and Scottie Marsh. We’ve got definitive pieces on the Northern Rivers floods from Andy Summons, Jed Smith and Pete Bowes. We’ve got the story of the original Wreck Bay surfing mob and we track down Noa Deane, who’s been living quietly and surfing large. SW417 is a statement piece and a mag for the time.


Surfing World is being published independently by Jon Frank and Sean Doherty, two surf mag lifers. They have form. Frank is the Godfather of high-art surf photography. Seano is on a million-word surf story bender. They both hold a deep respect for surfing. Surfing World is a passion project for them. They’ve inherited a sense of duty. A surfing elder summed it up to them this way: “Make something beautiful that really says something.”
