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

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!

The Tour Doesn’t Need Jeremy Flores

Congratulations to Jeremy Flores on his win at the Billabong Pro Tahiti, but we are sorry the tour doesn’t need Jeremy! Just like the tour doesn’t need or didn’t need Phil Mcdonald, Gabe Kling, Bede Durbidge, Trent Munro, Luke Munro, Dayyan Neve, Lee Winkler, etc..

“Jeremy won today and it’s good to have him back. The tour needs his surfing. The tour needs his freely offered character assessments. The tour needs him.” – Surfer/Sean Doherty (or is it you need something to write about, so your milking this story adding as many words as you can?)

The tour needs John John, Kelly, Mick, Julian, Kolohe, Taj, and Dane Reynolds and the WSL knows it!

Jon Steele (surf photographer from Texas) Not Happy With Grant Ellis

“Fuck grant ellis @grantellis1 and his ego fueled photo editor dictatorship! For the past 15 years I have been working to get Texas surfing into the magazine only to have him shoot the article himself and take money and work away from me. Congrats on being the shittiest photo editor ever! Take my name off the photographer mast head!!” – Jon Steele

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

IN FOCUS with Rob Gilley

“To increase your publishing odds, you should always be looking for images that tell stories. With this photo, off-center framing helped communicate this year’s relentlessly warm California conditions.” – Rob Gilley / Surfer magazine

Wow, thanks so much for this in-depth way of how one photographer can get his or her’s photos in your magazine – off to the beach we go!
