Yvon Chouinard x The Surfer’s Journal

December 9, 2012

Patagonia’s founder; Yvon Chouinard, documents his love for The Surfer’s Journal. In 1992, Steve and Debbee Pezman left their reputable positions at Surfer Magazine, to start their own publishing business. Over twenty years later… TSJ provides six annual sessions of stoke, to over 20,000 subscribers. My favorite quote in regards to The Surfer’s Journal, comes from SP…

As custodians of The Journal, and as fellow long-time surfers ourselves, we take that responsibility seriously…but not too! For despite all the philosophic and poetic waxing about man and wave, the connection to nature, and the quasi-religious experience of the ride, when it comes right down to it surfing resides in the toy department of human affairs, and we think it’s perfect there. — Steve Pezman.

    have the exact same sentiments towards the journal – my collection takes pride of place ahead of all my design books and publications in my design studio – I'll be a subscriber for life!
