The Scheveningen Surf Krant is an initiative which saw the light of day in 2019 as a promotion to SSF. Lucas walked up to me during the 2018 edition and asked me If I’d like to be a part of something new. We had a quick brainstorm over a beer about releasing a recurring pulp magazine to celebrate Dutch surfing culture.
Next year an awesome template, which featured stunning surf shots taken and surfed by some of my friends, was dropped in my email giving me full artistic freedom to write up two pieces about this year’s edition of SSF and our local culture.
I wrote one comical piece about what to expect from this year’s festival cracking jokes about pulling your grandparents from the Pleistocene for 60+ surfing lessons and claiming that surfing and changes go better together than Jim Levenstein and warm apple pie.
The other piece was a homage to Scheveningen (locally known as Skiffa). A loving, but also cynical piece about the local culture and the funny quirks we sometimes have as Dutch surfers.
