Riptide #196

6 of 6 – 2013Riptide 196

Riptide’s 196th instalment features not one, but two breathtaking and exotic landscape covers – that’s bang for your buck in anyone’s language. Not only do you get that of the print mag – an unknown rider slotted at a dream-like Mexican pointbreak – but you get a copy of the ROAM Diaries DVD, Nomad Bodyboards latest film in the stellar ROAM series. There’s a distinct travel theme running through #196 – the tagline “Forever Searching” on the cover a hint at its trip-inspiring intentions – but it’s also filled with profiles and interviews with some of bodyboarding’s most intriguing and oft-overlooked cats.
