Makua Rothman On The Cover Of Man Of The World

Issue No.4 of MAN of the WORLD is here, and we could not be more excited. This is our Summer Issue, and we are all about beach living and exploring tropical paradises.

As usual, we have two covers for you; one featuring the young and extremely talented surfer, Makua Rothman. We are confident that it’s just matter of time before Makua is officially labeled as “The Next Great Surfer.” Our second cover features the handsome Welsh actor, Luke Evans (shot by John Balsam) who is quickly navigating his way to becoming one of Hollywood’s most sought after leading men having appeared in both The Fast & Furious 6 as well as The Three Musketeers.

This time around, our Passport location is Hawaii, and we’ve captured some of the most beautiful beaches and resorts in existence on our magazine’s pages. We also profile a fine selection of distinguished Men of the World including

* Nick Sullivan – Fashion Director of Esquire
* Patrick Grant – British fashion designer behind menswear brands like E. Tautz & Sons
* Kelly Slater – Record setting American professional surfer
* John Long – Author and rock climber who helped found “Stonemasters”

Another must-see feature is our editorial on vintage Tudor watches with gorgeous photography by Brad Bridgers and accompanying text by Hodinkee’s Ben Clymer. That’s just the foamy crest of wave, there’s so much more to see in this issue.

Dare we say it, but we are quite certain that this is our best one yet.

Source Interlink Update

“We’re all walking on egg shells up here” – Current employee of Surfing and Surfer magazine

People need to remember that Surfng and Surfer did not buy Transworld, but the parent company Source Interlink did. Many have thought that “they” would bury Transworld, but the realization of the matter is nobody knows what’s going to happen at any of the three magazines.

Annie Leibovitz Speaks

“I think that those of us who are photographers, um you know the difference between us and everyone else is we take what we do very seriously”

We’re shooting in the dark here, but sounds like she is stating the difference between people who take pictures (camera phones) and people who are photographers.

A discussion of the role of the professional photographer in an era dominated by smartphone cameras and image-sharing sites with Annie Leibovitz
