You may have caught this already on Facebook, you may not be the slightest bit interested, but if you’re curious to have a listen, here's This Ocean Life's Josh Pederson's overview:
"In Episode 34 we speak with John Brasen, life-long Australian surfer and 20-year editor of Pacific Longboarder magazine.
"John shares with us his harrowing tale of being resuscitated at Sunset Beach in 2018, early stories of growing up on the NSW North Coast, and how he suddenly found himself as the editor of a legendary surfing mag.
"We hear some great perspective on longboarding and running a mag, with a fun look at where longboarding has moved (and returned) since the 1960s. John talks about early surf trips to Java, Sumatra, Mentawais in the ’70s and ’80s as well as his own evolution in surfing and maintaining heavy stoke in the water."
