18seconds No. 09 out now
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 21 February, 2012 : - - Issue No. 09 is on island time as the world’s top juniors soak up the idyllic weather and dreamy beachbreaks of North Stradbroke Island. We sit down with legendary Photog Peter ‘Joli’ Wilson as he talks us through a bunch of his favourite images – literally! Effortlessly click on the play icons and listen to Peter’s soothing vocals as he takes you behind the scenes of each photo.
Ever wanted to know more about the Wright family? Follow us (karn!) on a journey and discover how the Wright family went from humble beginnings to one of the most powerful families in professional surfing. Did you know Owen’s father, Rob was told to rack-off on several occasions by the pretty young lady working his local chemist before marrying her? We didn’t either.
For 31 days we peeled ourselves out of bed and headed to Duranbah beach in Queensland's south east all in the name of research. Why? Good question! Our task – to monitor surf conditions and bring the findings to you. Through video observation, we put a few theories to test. Like, can SUP riders flare tail? You betcha!

We catch up with Coolangatta young dude, Leonard Rawlings who rallied a community together to raise $3200 sly ones, so he could spend a month in Hawaii at the Volcom house under Dean Morrison’s wings (no biggie!).
The fine folk at Flying Pineapple Media swing us an excerpt from My Life As A Pork Chop, 400 pages of the very best (and very worst) of Captain Goodvibes.
Do you like sun bleached, salt encrusted, garage goodness that’ll never be accused of taking itself too seriously? Good, because we have tunes in the reviews section you must hear – from the knockabout Gold Coast trio, Pirates Alive with their ‘Beach Daze’ EP and Melbourne based indie-rock quartet The McQueens.
But wait, there is more in them pages.
May your Autumn (Spring if you hail from the Northern Hemisphere) be filled with still mornings, solid groundswells and outrageously fun waves.
