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!

Dane Reynolds Half-Turn On The Cover Of Surfing Magazine

We have just received our newest issue of Surfing magazine showing Dane Reynolds on the cover doing somewhat of a grab rail half-turn with spray blowing in the howling wind.

Not impressed being we only expect the best when it’s Dane or is this Surfing mag trying to make Quiksilver happy with clearly showing the Quik logo on the cover?


“I spoke with Dane Reynolds. He told me a swell was headed to Morocco and he was going with Yadin Nicol and Dillon Perillo to film a few last-minute clips for his section in Cluster. Would SURFING be interested in coming along?” – Zander Morton

Talk Story: Jason “Ratboy” Collins – No Credit To The Photographer

Would had been nice if Surfline (or Jason) had at least mentioned the photographers name (Mike Balzer) who had shot the sequence of Jason Collins from the 1994 expression session at the O’Neill Coldwater Classic from Steamer Lane in Santa Cruz.

“it took them f_ckin six months to get me the check.” – Jason Collins
