Surfer Magazine Partners With Encyclopedia Of Surfing


San Clemente, CA (March 31, 2014) — SURFER is proud to become the presenting sponsor of the Encyclopedia of Surfing (EOS), a relationship that brings together two of surf culture’s most cherished and authoritative voices.

It’s a match made in surf history heaven. SURFER is the surf world’s flagship publication, long considered the “bible of the sport.” EOS, the surf world’s go-to reference source since its first printing in 2003, re-launched as a website in 2013. EOS has since become the greatest one-stop collection of surf information on the Internet, chock full of previously unseen photos, video, and film clips.

Surf media luminaries who have opened up their vaults to the EOS project include Bruce Brown, Kai Neville, Art Brewer, Taylor Steele, Dana Brown, Jeff Divine, John Severson, Doc Ball, Thomas Campbell, Greg MacGillivray, Stacy Peralta, LeRoy Grannis, Alby Falzon, and Pete Taras.

SURFER’s support will enable EOS to continue to preserve and curate surfing’s cultural history while providing its content absolutely free of charge.

“SURFER has relied so heavily on The Encyclopedia of Surfing over the years, that supporting Matt and his vision to bring the encyclopedia online was the least we could do,” says editor Brendon Thomas. “If SURFER’s sponsorship of EOS enables Matt to continue to do what he does so well, then we feel we’ve done the surf world a service.” will feature a
