EASTERN SURF MAGAZINE

https://www.easternsurf.com/category/digital-edition

Eastern Surf Magazine (ESM) was founded by Tom Dugan and Dick Meseroll In 1991. It quickly became the bible of the east coast surfing communities and could be found in every surf shop from Maine to Miami. ESM was ad supported and was distributed for free. Often irreverent with scantily clad ESM girls in each issue, ESM had the pulse of the east coast like no other magazine. ESM succumbed to the digital age and ceased its print publication in 2017. It is still available online.
