Joel Tudor Just Pissed On Surfing Magazine

… but then again Surfer and Surfing are both owned by the same company so I guess you can say he pissed on the parents as well!

“If you are a longboarder — do not support @surfingmagazine // since I was grommet these guys have consistently held up the standard started by Larry Moore — that longboarding was not a legitamite form of wave riding and didn’t belong in the pages of their mag! They still hold that standard today and have told my boss @vans this on a many of occasions! Funny part is I blasted them via @sunnygarcia and now they are trying to back pedal!!!! – if you think I’m kidding ….. Ask yourself one question … When was the last time you saw a pic of a longboarder in surfing ???? Art via @porous_walker” – Joel Tudor

Peter Taras No Longer Photo Editor At Surfing Magazine

We just got off the phone with our good buddy Peter Taras and he has confirmed he is no longer the photo editor at Surfing Magazine, but Jimmy Wilson (former assistant photo editor) is taking over. Peter will now oversea all website and social media aspects for their website.

Jimmy gave Peter a nice farewell package – Peter landing this months cover shot of Kolohe Andino surfing on the south side of the Huntington Beach Pier. The 50ft American flag provided by the Ten group.

Hey wait a minute Mr. Taras – did you get the whole “flag” idea from our shoot with Scotty Stopnik?

Surfer Magazine Choosing To Show No Logos

Probably the biggest headache for any publisher and editor is the cover. If you throw John John Florence on the cover visibly showing all his logos one family is happy and the rest is pissed off.
It’s a constant battle trying to stroke everyone off (the big advertisers “Billabong, Hurley, O’Neill, Quiksilver, Rip Curl, Volcom, Reef, etc.”)

So we have noticed going back to 2013 Surfer magazine has yet to show any surfer on their cover which shows any logos. (Blisss Magazine does the same thing, but instead of showing photos on their covers they only show artwork)

No Logos Allowed!

Playboy Magazine Drops All Nude Photos

Playboy’s circulation has dropped from 5.6 million in 1975 to about 800,000 now. “That battle has been fought and won. You’re now one click away from every sex act imaginable for free.” – Scott Flanders / NY Times

That is why Playboy magazine (Cory Jones / Editor) is trying something different and will no longer be posting nude photos in their magazine.
