Surfer Magazine’s award-winning women’s surf magazine, Salted returns to newsstands June 11. The debut issue was the most popular special issue produced by Surfer and earned a 2013 Maggie Award in the Best Annual & Custom Publication category.
“For the second issue, we wanted to really show how broad female surfing is, so we included features that span all ages, locations, and sectors of the surf world,” says Surfer Managing Editor Janna Irons, who edited the issue.
The second issues boasts nearly 100 pages of female surf content that includes surfer interviews, photo features and health articles. Some of the many female surfers featured in Issue 2 include Malia Manuel, Kassia Meador, Steph Gilmore, and Lisa Andersen.
“We are proud to create a special issue that really showcases the women in the sport,” says Publisher Tony Perez. “The caliber of female athletes has never been this high, and their performances have never been better. And thanks to the endemic support for the girls, we are able to produce this amazing product.”
Since the debut issue hit newsstands last summer, readers have been asking for more. The scarcity of female surf content has left female surf fans wanting more female focused content.
“I don’t think the demand for female content has ever decreased; in fact, there are more female surfers and female surfing fans now than ever before,” continues Irons. “For a while now, there just hasn’t been a place to see all the great trips and sessions that are happening around the world. Salted is able to provide that, and because it’s made by the editors of Surfer it has the level of quality and authenticity readers have come to expect from the biggest surf magazine in the world.”
Beginning June 11, 2013, Salted by Surfer Magazine will be available in local surf shops, bookstores and on the Apple Newsstand.
