    Have you picked up Issue #133 yet? Our cover photo of Sustainable Surf ambassador Ashley Lloyd conveys the feeling of summer better than any image we’ve seen in a long time. The photo was taken by Bryan “@WetFeet” Garrison and we invite you to soak in the wholesome summer vibes and take them wherever you go.

    As you may know we took a brief pause in publishing because we were dealing with some health issues and burnout from the winter. We believe in keeping Adventure Sports Journal free for everyone, because the outdoors should be free for everyone. However, our costs are high, and we rely on our readers and advertisers to stay available in print.
