176 pages, perfect bound, and printed in full colour on FSC approved uncoated 120gsm paper in the United Kingdom.
Backwash Issue Four is a surf anthology featuring Atlantic Islands. The cover features Frenchman Justin Becret shot by Canarian photographer Manu Miguelez. Photography by Matty Dunbar, Sergio Villalba, Al Mackinnon and Filippo Maffei amongst others. Belinda Baggs talks motherhood and wave pools, whilst Jasson Salisbury discusses his meditation and Greg Long talks brotherhood. Jamie Brisick writes about nakedness, illustrated by long term contributor David Beckitt. We feature Leonard Cohen, Arthur Rimbaud, Mele Sali, Mikey Wright and Laura Enver. Visiting various Atlantic Islands we encounter Walt Whitman, Easkey Britton, Christian Rosillo, Tom Lowe, Benjamin Sanchis, Scotty Sherin, Will Bailey, Mitch Corbett, Michael H. Kew, and James Katsipis. George Foulds gives us his unique perspective. Eli Thor Magnusson's portfolio is cold and majestic. Curate is filled with Matt Smith, Hands for Feet, Jelle Mul, and Chris Doring and we conclude with Dan Crockett on the realities of our vision of perfection. Dedicated to the memory of Simon Kerr, Mark Lumsden and Surfer Magazine. RIP
Backwash is a glorious, chaotic ensemble of surfing how we see it. The core of Issue Three's 176 pages is The United Kingdom and we will continue planting one tree in County Clare for every copy that we sell. This is the heart of Backwash, what is left behind when the wave recedes.
