1970s British surf mags

Surf Insight is Britain's second earliest surf mag, after Rod Sumpter's British Surfer. It was started by Paul Holmes ( who went on to be editor of Australian mag Tracks and editor of Surfer through the 80s), Fuz Bleakley and Simonne Renvoize. It was in newspaper format and included political and social issues, had a environmental page, cartoons by Fuz and wide ranging surf articles which made it an influential Rolling Stone meets surf-esque mag. It is very rare to see any copies now so thanks to Graham for sending pics of his.If anyone wants to contact Graham about his mags or possible trades email him on grahamlooker@googlemail.com . The Surf magazine is from the mid 70s and features Graham Nile from St Austell on the cover.
