Seminal surf world writer, editor, publisher, photographer, filmmaker, and artist from San Clemente, California; best known as the founder in 1960 ofSurfer magazine. “Before John Severson,” surf journalist Sam George wrote in 1999, “there was no ‘surf media,’ no ‘surf industry’ and no ‘surf culture’—at least not in the way we understand it today.”

My favorite of his films. Pacific VibratioNs 1969
