Surfing World | Issue 422
Surfing World’s summer issue is packed with deep dive reading for the holidays. We open with two very different Indonesian travel stories – a modern and a classic. We open with a strike mission to one of Indonesia’s last great secret waves, then go back 30 years to the discovery of maybe Indo’s greatest wave – Lance’s Right – and we tell the remarkable life story of Lance Knight. We’ve got the story of two huge summer surf films – Harry Bryant’s Motel Hell and Matt Hannon’s Road to Patagonia, and we look at the revival of the town hall surf movie. One of Mat Tildesley’s remarkable dark mofo strobe image graces the cover, and we have a full replication of Surfing World’s most iconic magazine – 1982’s Roadsong. At 180 pages, SW422 is a big old summer surf read.
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.”
