On the cover: We’ve explored the tube from every conceivable POV, including the surfer’s. Recent developments in “spherical capture” are rubbing up against virtual reality, as displayed by Jordy Maree in South Africa. In TSJ 29.5, we pay close inspection to waypoints as far as Namibia’s Skeleton Coast to take stock of that sand-dredging bender, and as wide as the snowsurf movement deep in the mountains of Japan’s Hokkaido Island. Profiles of Waikiki style staple Arthur “Toots” Anchinges and Australian surfer-rocker-taxidermist Jaleesa Vincent provide contemporary written portraiture, while a look at the premillennial photography of charmer Rennie Ellis and a 10-spread roundup of the latest work from the world’s best surf shooters offers page-stopping visual stimuli. All that, and more, between the flaps.
