Bummer, Dude: Surfer Magazine Wipes Out

Shake the sand out of your baggies, stow your boards, and pack up the woodie. After 60 years, Surfer magazine is ceasing publication. And just when climate change is making more monster waves, too. Observers say it’s the ebbing economics of the pandemic that helped end Surfer‘s epic ride.


“Surfer magazine, iconic touchstone of Southern California beach culture, shuts down,” Mike Freeman and Gary Robbins, Los Angeles Times

“Iconic SURFER magazine publishes last issue after 60 years,” Martin Wisckol, Orange County Register


“UC San Diego virus expert pleads with surfers to stay out of the ocean to avoid coronavirus,” Gary Robbins, San Diego Union Tribune
