Surf Magazines

Surfboard: Noun. An object upper-class twits hide behind as they attempt to look cool.

Surf magazines date back to the time everything went wrong with surfing, when the Gidget movies were released. One could argue that surf magazines don't belong on this blog. Instead of declining, they have been consistently bad.

There is so much they could write about, namely declining water quality. This and other issues, which could make the current generation of surfers the last, are largely ignored.

Instead, magazines like Surfer and Surfing are all fluff. Boobs, parties and waves take up most of the 2% of their space that isn't advertising. Every issue is the same as the last: Hey kids! Let's go to Hawaii!
