Surfing Magazine’s “Rulebook” reminds us all to restrain our inner-grom (claiming, snaking, screaming) in order to maintain the respect and sacred solitude of surfing. The rules aren’t asking surfers to bow down to “heavy locals”, they’re simply suggestions to beach-goers who lack discretion in their session.
It’s also relevant reading material for the average surfer, in a world where XXL charging and progressive airs dominate the periodicals. And most of us ARE average surfers.

So, we subscribers to Surfing Magazine never miss the monthly dose of the Surfing’s Rule Book. Find it towards the back of the mag, under the “Core-Score” – another surfer canon respected by the core-est of the core. That’s why we at Swell were honored to get penciled into the Rulebook in a recent issue.
The Rule Book Read: “The Swell Catalog is to us [Surfing Magazine Staff] as the Toys ‘R’ Us catalog is to children”
Thanks Surfing, an here’s one back at ya: Surfing Magazine invented the Fight Club code of surfing, like “The first rule of surfing is, there are no rules…just don’t blow it”.
Surfing Rulebook recently launched a twitter site, giving us a few daily words of wisdom. Prepare yourself for blunt humorous advice that’s relevant from Pismo to Pipe. If you think it doesn’t apply to you, we need to invent a rule about that. Anyone know some good one-liners that apply?
