Surf mags

In the 60s Britain didn't have any major surf magazines ( until Rod Sumpter brought out British Surfer in '69 ) so Surfer , the top US mag was highly prized by mail order and also imported and sold from Doug Wilson's shop in Newquay. British surfers and shapers could now keep up with all the latest trends from abroad.
