African Surf Rider - Volume 2 Number 3 On Sale Now

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 8 April, 2008 : - - Containing a mix of contemporary surfing articles as well as some classic and retro images and words, the latest helping of African Surf Rider has something for everyone. As the mag continues to grow in popularity and gather new fans along the way, so this great new issue has arrived for all to enjoy.

Shaun Tomson, 1977 world champion and perennial athlete is the Legend interviewed for this issue. Shaun has come a long way and been through a lot in his 52 years, and in this interview opens up with some dreams, desires, the joys of surfing and the sadness that we all have to deal with.

The Cortes Bank mission is the main subject in the Grant 'Twiggy' Baker interview, written by Surfer Magazine managing editor Brendon Thomas, as well as the motivations that get him relentlessly chasing the biggest surf that the world has to offer. Amazing photos of the biggest surf session of all time accompany the article.

A unique photo-feature consisting of portrait and moody shots of surfers standing around, on the beach, in the carpark blends in with an exciting lead article of SUP (Stand Up Paddleboard) riding.

Rider Focus is all about hot young New Pier surfer Kirsty Delport. KD has fast been making a name for herself at the New Pier by charging the big stuff and ripping the small stuff. Kirsty was recently recognised at the Roxy Invitational Mozambique as one of our top up-and-coming female riders.

An alternative look on our surfing universe, African Surf Rider has been receiving non-stop positive feedback and continues to grow in circulation each and every issue that hits the shelves. For more info check out africansurfrider.colza or mail Jake Oberholzer on
