New Zealand Surfing magazine is New Zealand longest running and most READ surfing magazine (New Zealander's have produced surf mags since the early 1950s, but New Zealand Surfing is the only one to have been continuously published for TWENTY EIGHT years). Each issue is wave after wave of hardcore surf action.
Xmas is here and so is the latest instalment of the Voice of NZ Surfers, NZ Surfing Mag! On the COVER we feature our main man Ricardo Christie who went on an end of year tear and in the running went on to make the final of The Hawaiian Pro at Haleiwa the first kiwi to make an Hawaiian final since Allan Byrne at the Pipe Masters in 1981. Lens man Shaun Tunney just so happened to be beachside during this remarkable feat and nailed such an iconic image of the man making his way up the beach having basically done enough to qualify for the World Tour. So we decided in the last hour before going to print to run this cover, our first portrait cover ever! But the stress wasn’t yet over, while we knew Ric had done enough, mathematically he could still be passed at Sunset, but we stuck to our guns and prayed we wouldn’t be coming out with FRONT COVER NEWS that was wrong. During all of this Paige Hareb had also re-qualified for her 8th year on tour and was competing in the last event of the year at Honolua Bay which went off the richter and Paige claimed her best result of the year. We are soo proud of both of these surfers and look forward to the 2019 Season and a run at the Olympics for both.
