Standerd Quarterly

Do you know the Surfers Journal? If not look here. The Standerd Quarterly has the same ideas like the Surfers Journal, less ads and really good pictures and articles around the sport. The most of the costs is paid by subscribers.

The Standerd is a new quarterly publication founded by acclaimed wake photographers Joey Meddock and Josh Letchworth. It features only the best in photography, design and writing.
Its purpose is to chronicle wakeboarding and wakeskating from a photo-journal perspective, providing a unique, high-quality canvas for the lifestyle, people and events in wake.
There are far fewer ads in
The Standerd, because the books are mostly supported by subscribers, rather than advertisers.

For more information check their website. Picture is also from there.
