Surge Media Group, www.SurgeBodyBoarding.com is proud to release Surge Version 5.0. The cover showcases bodyboarding legend Brian Wise pulling into a beast of a wave at Off The Wall on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii. The photograph was taken by photographer Ricardo Estevez.
Version 5.0 premieres two household bodyboarding names—Maui’s own Jacob Romero, aka Guy Hags, and IBA staff photographer/South African ripper, Sacha “The Spex” Specker. Version 5.0 then brings the ruckus with a photo feature of this past winter in both Hawaii and California, profiles on New York based Atlantic Bodyboard Shop and artist Shorty Fatz, and steps into the vast world of Go Pro with none other than Robbie Crawford. Finally, Surge brings you the Class of 2012, a feature dedicated to the future of bodyboarding. Over three dozen profiles of the best up and coming bodyboarding talent—age 21 & under—from America and other regions in the world. It is the biggest of its kind to have ever been publicized, so don’t miss out on this feature and all the other goods this issue has to offer.
