The Wall

"We will be sailing to a very remote region far out in the Atlantic to find new waves, exploring the wider themes of adventure and human attraction to those regions far beyond the comfort zone."

Backwash is a glorious, chaotic ensemble of surfing how we see it. The core of Issue One's 160 pages is Ireland and for this reason we are planting one tree in County Clare for every copy that we sell. This is the heart of Backwash, what is left behind when the wave recedes.

We are the Spit


We are the folds and creases in your heart. The steps in the face, the ledge, the lip.
We are dislodged boulders, havoc of the storm, wasted land. We are bare teeth, chicken skin, ill rhythm.
