The cover features Basque Country freesurfer Stan Piechaczek representing creative collective The Switched Kickout Surf Syndicate, which rejects competition and champions surfing for fun.

Spinning off from the theme there’s also a story about a group of cold water surfers from the Great Lakes and the gnarly UK rap battle scene as well as interviews with Kalle Lasn, editor of radical anti-capitalist magazine Adbusters, and anti-establishment pro snowboarder-turned-bike courier Scotty Wittlake.

Huck also catches up with female snow prodigy Jamie Anderson, legendary big-wave surfer Shane Dorian, pro bodyboarder-turned-conservationist Mark Cunningham and SoCal surf jazz twins The Mattson 2.

Plus there’s a report on hip hop in India, documentary photography about young Afghan migrants in Europe, a column about consuming culture by street art expert King Adz and stories on eco charity Wildcoast, ethical taxidermist Jazmine Miles-Long, kids’ book maker Dallas Clayton, snow shooter Yves Suter, Gainesville punk festival FEST, dry slope-supporting non-profit The Snowboarders’ Foundation and New York street photographer Cheryl Dunn.
