Issue 201 – Quarter 4 – 2014
A new beginning.
When world traveller, tattoo canvas and air connoisseur Nick Gornall joined Jase Finlay in the tropics for a few leisurely weeks you just knew there’d be fireworks. Here’s bodyboarding’s rockstar in a state of full-throttled poise, adorning the cover of the first of our new quarterly issues. With thicker, higher-quality paper and 16 extra pages to play with, we think you’re gonna dig Riptide’s new journal-style format.
