My Blog__ LATER.
Later. Magazine launches its first issue this Saturday in Toronto.
The first and last time I went surfing I broke my boyfriend's nose. Now I mostly limit my involvement in surf culture to salt water hair sprays and neoprene dresses. I also dig reading articles about surfing because they're often linked to travel, which I've succeeding at without breaking anyone other than myself (broken thumb, bicycle, Phnom Penh's red light district, thanks a lot Brian Calvert). In fact, one of my favourite travel memories is watching 10-year-old kids ride waves like no big deal in Sri Lanka. I stopped harbouring the fantasy that I'm some fearless yet graceful Blue Crush chick but, from my perch, safe on the sand, I love watching people in the waves do their thing.
The brand new Later. Magazine fuses together travel and surf "with all the shitty filler eliminated." It's an approach to travel journalism that doesn't pander to tourists. In the magazine, you'll find content about "the surf industry, global issues, international adventures, stories of incredible experiences, useful information, and jokes." If you're in Toronto tomorrow night, go check out the launch at 709 College and pick up a copy. For everyone else, Later. Magazine will be available at magazine stands in book stores all over the place.
