ACID Issue 2 / Olivier Talbot
This is Acid Issue 2 and its very flashy cover, a timeless surf magazine about more than just surf.
Acid is a publishing project looking at surfing through the prisms of exploration and everyday life. Shortly after surfing had become important for us, we felt the need to portray surfing in a broad context and explore its fringes with art, science, philosophy and poetry. So we’ll do just that, trying hard not to sound too serious.
It contains a flurry of entertaining and stimulating pieces, like an extensive look at Gotland, the Hawaii of the Baltic Sea; Thomas Prior’s take on the Eisbach; a trip underwater to discover artificial reefs; a tale of survival attempts in tropical and polar waters; an examination of the relationship between surfing and coastal developments; an exploration of Ireland by bike. And some more.
Here are some spreads set against a backdrop of concrete coastal armoring, because we cover engineered good times.
