Item #ANT449 Founded, edited, illustrated and photographed by John Severson, The Surfer began as a magazine comprised of photographs taken while filming Severson's 1960 film, Surf Fever. Preceding any type of industry for surf photography, art, or writing, Severson used the magazine to disseminate information about the nascent sport, including in it writing about surf technique, surf spots, and surf culture.
Over time, the publication grew and evolved in style and content, changing first into a quarterly magazine, and finally appearing bi-monthly and covering not only surfing but also international affairs, consciously addressing environmental, cultural, and political topics of the day. It was initially produced in a run of 10,000 and was later reprinted in 1973. Boo-Hooray is dedicated to the organization, stabilization, and preservation of the 20th and 21st century cultural movements, specializing in ephemera, photography, and book arts.
