Surfing World Magazine

Surfing World has been around for over 50 years and our longevity can be attributed to one very simple philosophy – We love everything to do with surfing.
We believe in surfing as a lifestyle with its own rich culture and fantastic community of people. Our readers are intelligent, fun loving and optimistic. They are as interested in the goings on of modern professional surfing as they are about the artists who use the sea as an inspiration.
It’s for these very reasons a partnership with Surfing World is also a partnership with truth, relevance and respect.

The Magazine

Surfing World is the magazine celebrating the stoke of wave riding and our partners are valued contributors in making that possible. Surfing World is the only magazine able to break typical print structure and cover major events and explore people and themes from cover to cover in detail unattainable from other mediums. In the past, our most successful issues covered the gigantic Fiji swell, the passing of Michael Peterson, the next wave of groms and the life of Gerry Lopez.
In addition, themed issues including The Interview Issue, The 50 Most Intruging People in Surfing Today and the World Title Wrap-Up have become anticipated releases. Surfing World is the only magazine that treats all surfers regardless of age, gender or ability on equal terms. If you love the ocean you’ll love Surfing World Magazine.

Surfing World to me has always been really hardcore and has always presented surfing as it is.

I have a lot of good things to say about Surfing World. It covers everything, every angle of surfing, and it’s aesthetically pleasing. What isn’t there to love. It’s the raddest of them all!
