Backwash Magazine: Issue 3
176 pages, perfect bound, and printed in full colour on FSC approved uncoated 120gsm paper in the United Kingdom. A proper coffee table piece with the most stunning surf photography we've seen in print for a very long time. The quality of print here is ridiculous.
Backwash Issue Three is a surf anthology featuring The United Kingdom, the photography of John Respondek and Harry Mark, Ben Selway and Jack Johns. Hannah Stocks appeals to surfing, whilst Jon Frank discusses his youth and CJ Mirra talks whale communication with Chris Watson. Noah Lane writes about Brett Herring, illustrated by Josh Vyvyan. We feature Saskia Koerner and Craig Anderson, Leo Tolstoy and Chris McClean. Fergal confronts the topic of non violent communication and Guilia Frigieri writes to Easkey Britton. In the UK we encounter John Cooper Clarke, Easkey Britton, Jesse Davies, Lewis Arnold. Danny Wall, Mickey Smith, Jim Newitt and Mike Lay give their perspective. Alex Williams and Pete Gaell give their take. Ben Thouard's portfolio is splendid majesty. Curate is packed with Zarate, Gansicke, Rodriguez, Butler, Britta and we conclude with Michael Fordham on the realities of our time. Dedicated to the memory of Anton Hawkins. RIP
Backwash is a glorious, chaotic ensemble of surfing how we see it. The core of Issue Three's 176 pages is The United Kingdom and we will continue planting one tree in County Clare for every copy that we sell. This is the heart of Backwash, what is left behind when the wave recedes.
