Surfing World Issue 339 // The House Part II
A couple of years ago Surfing World released the first House Issue. It was miles from nowhere up the side of a eucalypt-covered mountain and for four days it pissed down the most torrential rain most had ever seen. In all, 50 surfers came and shared the stoke of something so simple in theory: one house, a handful of surf options and the company of good characters. A couple of big surfing events later, the House Issue is back with the second chapter in print. La Casa Artist Residency put us up in their house right on a nude beach, the waves pumped, we played horrible music and everyone surfed their brains out. The rest is history. Come on it, leave your care at the door and enjoy the stoke.

Issue 338. Australia’s best-kept secret will tantalise and stoke that surfing fire while wettie-clad folk looking itty-bitty in Shipstern caverns may just do the opposite. Jon Frank plays Frankology with Ryan Burch and Nanda Ormond squiggles joy as always. Oh, and our main feature? Our 50 Most Intriguing People In Surfing Today? Yeah, blood’s gonna be spilt over the keys on this one. It’s all on sale tomorrow.
