Our team

Surfd was founded in 2003 by author and travel writer Bradley Hook. It is managed by Geniya Ignatova at Dash Media.

Together with a dedicated team of freelance and regular writers, we aim to bring you fresh perspectives and inspiration for a lifetime of surfing.

The magazine

Over the past 16 years we’ve reviewed hundreds of products and built a solid community of surfers around our articles and reviews. We keep things lean and minimalist. Not too many ugly ad banners or nasty sponsored links.

Where are you?

We are based in New Zealand but have writers in Hawaii, California, Europe, Costa Rica and Indonesia.

How do I get my surf products reviewed?

Just send us an email and tell us what you’ve got.

Can I write for you?

Send us a review of something you love, an article about somewhere you’ve been or a short story and we’ll let you know. We are always on the look out for stories from surf writers.
