DESCRIPTION

In what is easily our biggest offering yet, ISSUE 3 is sure to satisfy our rapidly growing readership. Featuring 166 pages of pure photographic gold, as well as stories from the world’s best riders and photographers, we’ve left no stone unturned. In this issue, a young man by the name of Hitoti Henry graces our front cover, in what can only be described as a faultless Tahitian funnel. We speak to Croatian superstar Ivan Pulic, find out how to climb the ranks at Blackrock with Morgan Brown, follow three mates across the ditch to the Land of the Long White Cloud, and discover Australia’s best beachie. We’ve also got all the latest images and stories from the Australian Winter, friendly banter with Sam Strachan, and one incredible portfolio from respected tog, Josh Tabone.

  • Change is in the air. A new movement is taking place. A new generation of quitters has emerged well, at least amongst my circle of friends. Since starting up this magazine, three of my close friends have quit their jobs in order to pursue a life that favours leisure over labour, freedom over entrapment. I have made no secret of my total disdain for the 9-5 grind, and my perpetual habit of quitting jobs. In my short time here on earth, I have dabbled in numerous vocations, ranging from dish-pig to press photographer, to kayak salesman and valet parker. This erratic lifestyle is not representative of my inability to work, but is the result of my utter refusal to be tied down by full-time employment.

    For as long as I can remember, I have been told by family, friends, teachers, peers and idols of the importance of securing a well-paid full-time job a career. For years I never questioned this ideology, and went about completing my HSC, graduating from university and taking all of the necessary steps to kick-start my career as a journalist. And then something happened. I got my dream job working as a journalist at my local newspaper, and six months later, I hated it.

    The truth is, I have never held a full-time job, and hopefully never will. This attitude is likely the result

    of bodyboarding and the amazing lifestyle and experiences that come with it. Growing up as a frothing grom, you will go to ridiculous lengths to score waves. This often involves avoiding employment at all costs and surviving on a staple diet of tuna and bread. This can only be described as the shoestring lifestyle. Its a simple life, but one full of freedom and excitement. We all know it these were the happiest days of our lives.

    So here I am today, at the tender age of 25, still somehow managing to avoid the perils of full-time employment. Sure, I may not have the cash to splash on fancy gadgets, the latest iPhone or hipster fashion trends, but I am doing what I love.

    And herein lies the challenge. Be honest with yourself. Decide what it is you are truly passionate about, and run with it. Now is the time. Youre young, energetic, free of financial pressures and have the freedom to pursue anything you choose, whether its riding waves, photography, music, or travel. A wise man by the name of Morgan Brown once told me We are here for a good time, not a long time. It took me a few years to truly appreciate what the big man was trying to get across. But damn, Im glad I eventually figured it out.

  • Hitoti Henry (rider): This day I was paddling early in the morning with Alvino Tupuai. It was glassy, really west and shallow. It was a bodyboard day, with only one surfer out there. When we arrived in the channel, Jake Stone had just lost his board on a big airdrop and he was so pissed off. I caught a few sketchy ones, and managed not to get caught in the close out. The swell was slowly turning more south, then this wave came through. It just looked too perfect not to catch. It was perfect all day long. I think it was the best swell I ever surfed so far.

    Raihei Tapeta (photographer): If there was a day that should not be missed at Teahupoo it was this one! After two historic big swells that hit Tahiti in May and June, Teahupoo again gave us very good conditions. Local bodyboarders Henry Tahurai, Alvino Tupuai and Hitoti Henry were exceptional - they do not hesitate to push the limits when the conditions are on! This wave of Hitoti is one of my favorite images to date. Its both powerful and beautiful.

  • FRAMEONE

  • George Humphreys, Western Australia. Photo: Dahn Colman. This day in the West was the first sunny offshore day wed seen in about

    a month. The swell was solid, but slow, and not many were linking up well. Id considered packing up my gear several times, but knew something big was gonna go down. Hanging around definitely paid off. Dahn Colman.

  • FRAMETWO

  • Chris James, South Australia. Photo: Ben Lee. Ive spent a fair amount of time floating around these areas in the past years but Ive never had the chance to shoot anyone surfing this wave. I shot this photo as I was jumping out of the car on arrival. It was great watching the guys have a solid

    crack at this place before the circus rocked up the next day. Ben Lee.

  • FRAMETHREE

  • James Moore, NSW. Photo: Alex Gibson. This day was pretty gnarly because it was my first decent session after

    breaking my leg out there four months prior. I remember watching a few hectic close-outs and then this one came through as a wedge and I remember having to paddle super hard. As I was taking off the reef just

    drained out on me. I tried to hold my line and drive through it. Luckily it all worked out for the best and we nailed this shot. James Moore.

  • FRAMEFOUR

  • Eric Roy, Queensland. Photo: Jye McDonald. Right before this day, thered been a huge swell smashing the coast for

    a week and I wasnt sure what the banks would be like afterwards. Its a bit of a mission to get to and it can be so bad, but when its on, its one of

    my favourite waves. The forecast was too good to refuse trying. We got up real
