In the 50 years of its publication Surfer Magazine has only felt moved to place a female surfer on their cover a mere 3 times. I don't think anyone blames them for that but if I were a pro surfer I'd be lining up to go on Worthy's next trip. Jason's cover ratio looks like Kobe’s shooting percentage so if you’ve got the moves you might want to think about getting in front of Mr. Kenworthy’s lens for a shot at the most coveted cover in the biz.

We couldn't be more proud of A-Frame contributor Jason Murray after bringing home the "Monster Tube" photo award with his image of Mark Healey from a slab they call Yeti. We know how much work those guys put into chasing giant surf last year so it's nice to see them bring home the gold. Same goes for big wave gladiators Greg Long, Grant “Twiggy” Baker and Derek Dunfee. All of whom are true waterman and some of the most humble guys you’ll ever meet.

Back by popular demand, the Surfing Heritage Foundation announces the continuation of last years surf photographer slide shows with a new series for 2009, “Light Table Sessions” presented by Nike 6.0. The series of three shows is co-produced with the cooperation of surf publications TransWorld SURF, Surfing and Surfer. Each magazine’s Photo Editor will present a slide show of their favorite images and “talk story” about the images and the photographers who took them.
On April 24, TransWorld SURF’s Aaron Checkwood will be first to present, followed by Peter Taras of Surfing Magazine May 22, and the series concludes on June 26 with Surfer Magazine’s Grant Ellis. Each show will be unique and all showings will be held at the Surfing Heritage Foundation’s San Clemente location, with the world’s most important collection of surfboards as the setting for the events. Participants will be able to view the collection, enjoy a no host bar; and have a unique opportunity to enjoy a slide show and meet the Photo Editors of each publication. Each event will start at 7:00 and cost $15 to attend. Seating is limited. Proceeds will benefit SHF. For ticket sales and driving directions call the Surfing Heritage Foundation at 949 388-0313 x 5.
