Surfing Life Magazine Under Heat For Calling Otis Carey “Apeish”

“With his apeish face and cowering hair-curtains, I expect little more than Cro-Magnon grunts from his mouth. I am caught off guard by the clarity and eloquence of his speech,” Nathan Myers wrote in the Surfing Life magazine’s March issue.

Otis Carey (aboriginal heritage)

Yesterday it was brought to our attention that Otis Carey and his family were offended by a term used in the article, Poetry Night With Mermaid Killer, published in the March issue of Surfing Life.

Upon the original edit of the magazine, we read the offending term as a jibe at the stereotypical surfer – and failed to see the racist connotations. Immediately upon being made aware of these, we offered our unreserved apologies, which they were gracious enough to receive.

At Surfing Life, we absolutely abhor racism of any kind and actively work to eradicate it from our culture. In the same issue, we extended five pages of free advertorial space to a charity active in remote Indigenous communities and while our respect for Otis is primarily driven by his incredible talent as a surfer, we also admire the fact he is a role model for many Indigenous Australians.

On a personal note, our Editor Wade Davis is a man of colour whose maternal family immigrated to Australia from Africa. He also has Indigenous heritage on his paternal side and is exceptionally sensitive to the challenges and issues racism presents in our community. Davis is devastated that a thoughtless misread could have allowed an insensitive and damaging term to have slipped through to publication.

Unfortunately, none of this changes Otis’, or his family’s hurt. We have since amended our digital edition of the magazine, published this apology online and continue to offer our apologies to the Carey family and Indigenous community overall. Otis’ family requested that we not contact him at this time and we continue to respect their wishes.

Magazine ‘The Surfers Path’ Closes It’s Doors

Email we received today:
Apologies for the group email but please be assured – it’s a select group!

All of you have contributed in different ways to The Surfer’s Path magazine and I want to let you know how much I have valued your collaboration, input and support over the years.

TSP’s 100th issue is about to hit the shelves and although I consider that something to celebrate, it comes with the sad news that The Surfer’s Path will be shutting down with immediate effect.

Some time during the production of the issue, Factory Media managers informed me of their decision to discontinue the title as soon as TSP100 is published on December 27th.

The news is no great surprise. Several years ago I began urging Factory to either invest in the title or shut it down because an editorial staff of one, with an ever-shrinking budget, is not a sustainable approach. So, here we are.

Anyhow, I just wanted to take this opportunity to let you know the news, and to thank you for your support over these last 17 years/100 issues. It has been an enormous honour and a real pleasure to work with you and I wish you all the best for 2014 and beyond.

I’ll be unemployed as of tomorrow and though I have some projects on the go, I’m hungry for freelance/full-time/ultra-high paying work any time you have any.

In the meantime, I wish you all well and many, many thanks for the good stuff we were able to do together.

Go well!
Alex Dick-Read
