WELCOME TO THE BEATING HEART OF YOUR ADDICTION
WE ARE THE SPIT
THE TRADE WINDS
THE HOWLING GALE
WE ARE BACKWASH
On Wednesday 13th December Backwash converged on London to celebrate the launch of Issue Three. It was, for us, a big moment seeing the magazine for the first time after months of emails, arguments, conference calls, begging, thanking, laughing and above all else, hours and hours of hard work. A chance to celebrate this thing that for the 3rd time has managed to turn from an idea into a physical object to be shared and enjoyed. A chance to connect with new and old friends, just one of the reminders why we do this. We couldn't have done it without the incredible help from the Finisterre staff, and with the generosity of Harbour Brewery managed to celebrate in the most amazing fashion. Massive thanks to Steve Banks for the images, Finisterre for the venue and Harbour Brewery for the hazy Thursday.
Backwash Issue Two is a surf anthology featuring Japan, the photography of Chris Burkard and Sergio Villalba, Hamish Laing and Woody Gooch. Kalani Lattanzi swims at Nazare, whilst Amy Kotch surfs barrels whilst pregnant and John Peck knee paddles out as he has done since 1958.Purchase
