ON THE COVER: Surfing took on a whole new cultural meaning when Shaun Tomson (pictured in the cover image) and his contemporaries stormed the waves of Hawai’i in the winter of 1975. How that fateful season altered the future of surf is retold in Bustin’ Down the Door, a documentary that sees its world premiere at the S.B. International Film Festival on January 27. Read more about the movie and some new surfing books in this week’s cover story by Ethan Stewart. Cover image by Dan Merkel.
