Surfing World Magazine

For over 50 years Surfing World has continued to share the stoke of riding waves. From the Pro Tour to the isolated back beaches, from the characters taking surfing into the future to the legends of yesteryear, from the shaping bay to Byron Bay to Jeffreys Bay to Waimea Bay… there is something for everybody.


Kai Neville
Modern Collective, Lost Atlas, Dear Suburbia, Cluster. When it comes to melding high performance with an unyielding creative vision, no-one has experienced more critical acclaim, or has been more influential in the realms of high performance surfing in the past decade than Kai Neville. His award winning films have set the benchmark all other action movies aspire to reach.


Taylor Steele
The most influential surf filmmaker of all time? They didn’t name one of surfing’s most dominant eras the Momentum Generation for nothing. Taylor has done it all, from fact paced high-energy hits of the 90s, to beautiful cinematic travel based films, to profile films, music videos, he even chased one swell from Tahiti to Alaska. His latest film Missing showcased a different side to three time World Champion Mick Fanning as he was set loose on the world for three months to get lost. He famously created the clip based viral surf competition Innersection, and his music video for Unwritten Law's Teenage Suicide was nominated for Billboard's Alternative Music Video of the Year in 1999.


Jack McCoy
The big daddy legend of classic surf films has at one time or another touched us all. From his earliest offerings McCoy encouraged us to travel to far flung nations in search of perfection. The dream was surfing and we could all be a part of it. Throughout the late 80s and early 90s his tongue in cheek Billabong efforts could be quoted by groms and legends alike and his portfolio of documentary style profile films such as Sabotaj, The Occumentary and Blue horizon are definitive classics of surf film. His latest film, A Deeper Shade of Blue is his opus, a gift to surfing for aloha.
