There was a moment in surfing history when the door of possibility was busted wide open. And Shaun Tomson dealt the final blow. As the first South African World Champion, his transgressive energy helped legitimate surfing as a professional sport. But the determination he showed back then was nothing compared to what came next, when his family was rocked by tragedy.

This issue features… Shaun Tomson, a special section on the new generation of post-Apartheid South Africans, Yeasayer, Dinosaur Jr., Cosplay & Harajuku, London pug meetups, swordplay, skateboarders who also love to ride motorcycles, LGBT rights in North Carolina, Janne Saario, Dave Rastovich, Jeremy Fish, Phil Zwijsen, Jilly Ballistic and many more.
