Welcome to the mythologies edition; a deep-dive into the legends and lore that animate surf culture.
Inside, there’s the story of a nude surfer at 70’s Malibu, three Aussie sea dogs in search of a desert mirage and a sandbar christened with a slur. We’ll meet a woman who surfed through a tsunami, a man hunting mythical beasts in the Baltic and another finally settling down after a life at sea.
We’ll visit an island rumoured to be sinking below the waves, hear stories from Ireland’s golden age of surf discovery and learn of an accidental alliance of hippies and soldiers that birthed a modern surfing nation. With each story scored by a symphony of fine imagery, it’s the perfect way to escape the noise the summer.
