What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, right? In his latest edit, @andrewjacobson suffers a truly horrific wipeout during an all-time Cloudbreak session, resulting in a nasty knee injury. Fortunately Jacobson is on the mend and already plotting his next strike mission. To watch the full edit, head to our site. Video: @_huntermartinez #SURFERmagazine

Over the past few decades, photographer @tsherms has made a name for himself by capturing intimate, behind-the-scenes moments of some of surfing’s most iconic figures. His most enduring images are of the members of the Momentum Generation, like @benjiweatherley above, at the beginning of their meteoric rise in the early ‘90s. For an in-depth look at Sherman’s work, follow our link in bio for the latest “Showcase.” #SURFERmagazine

Knee-brace? That’s not stopping @john_john_florence from laying some seriously carnivorous wraps along his home coast with brothers @i_van_florence and @nathan_florence. Video: @parallelsea #SURFERmagazine

“T-Moe” a.k.a “T-Muck” a.k.a @thomascampbellart just released a new line of threads in collaboration with @visslasurf. Thomas’ craft has morphed and shifted over three decades and spanned into almost every medium of art. From Polaroid transfers to graffiti art on rocks in Baja, full-length surf films, paintings and more, the man has done it all with brilliance and originality. We’re giving you the chance to win some of that brilliance for yourself with a piece from the new Vissla line. Enter to win in our link in bio. #SURFERmagazine

Just days ago at Nazaré, big-wave charger @tobytrouble experienced what many would consider their worst surfing nightmare; taking not one, not two, but five massive sets on the head before being rescued. For a lesson in staying calm under pressure, head to our site. Video: @maquinavoadora // @plmiranda #SURFERmagazine

Who better to put a tripped-out asymmetrical shape through its unorthodox paces than @cocom4debarrelkilla? No one does weird better than Mason, which is why the ...Lost asym-quad featured in his new edit looks immeasurably fun under his feet. Live now on our site. Video: @riordanpringle #SURFERmagazine

Is this the most shreddable boat wake in the world? We took @dylangoodtimes, @noahwaggy and @frankieharrer out on @mcboatcompany’s new X-24 wake surfing boat to find out just legitimately rippable the wave really is. Turns out, it is easily the most fun you’ll have surfing behind a boat. For more, watch “Wake Town,” in our link in bio.
