Yep. It's true. As announced over at SurfersVillage.com, the surfing world has put out another magazine for us self respecting surfers not to buy. Standup Paddle Magazine launched it's virgin issue this month, ushering in a whole new error of anti-cool. While surfers the world over puke and laugh with disgust, we have an as of yet unconfirmed account of Chris Cote slitting his wrists.
Apparently, the first issue will focus on standup paddle surfing, how to stand prone, how to select a paddle, interior design, floral arrangements and rollerblading with the fellas. It will be a photo spectacular for you to ooh and ah at while waiting for your nails to dry at the salon.
Water Magazine, Drift and Longboard Magazine went under, yet this craptastic magazine get's launched? Who the hell is advertising in this thing? Are they unaware that they have paid good hard advertising dollars to be showcased alongside a few sea sweepers? What's next? Webbed Glove Surfing Magazine?
See below for photos from the maiden issue. Enjoy!
