Huck 45, specially guest-edited by artist, photographer, skateboarder and chronicler of Southern California Ed Templeton, is a colourful cruise through the Tempster’s motley crew of creative friends, spawned from skateboarding and surfing cultures.

As well as an epic interview with Ed – in which skateboarding’s favourite expressionist reflects on his Huntington Beach history, artistic inspirations and the community of likeminded DIYers he surrounds himself with – The Ed Templeton Issue also features in-depth interviews and beautiful photoshoots with Ed’s countercultural coterie:
