Wavelength is Europe’s longest running surf publication, in print since 1981.
While the format has evolved constantly over the last 38 years, in 2019 we’re still as dedicated as ever to providing top-drawer surf storytelling you can hold in your hands.
Each of our bi-annual offerings contain 144 pages of timeless long-form content, reaching into every corner of surf culture.
Nowadays, these editions sit much closer to a book than mere magazine, with our dedication to unparralled design and world-class imagery converging to create a product worthy of a place on your coffee table.
Inside each you’ll find a carefully curated selection of thought-provoking stories that use surfing as a springboard to explore so much more than the act of riding waves.

Whether you’re new to our publication or have been a casual reader for decades, here are five more reasons to subscribe to our print editions today:
You’re supporting independent publishing
While partnerships with core brands help make our print editions possible, our editorial allegiance remains resolutely with the reader. We decide what stories to tell, and what images to include and we base these decisions purely on what we know will connect with you. This independence allows us to offer our network of talented contributors the creative freedom they need to flourish and ensures the words you read are never censored by commercial bias.
You get the magazines for free
If you take out an annual £20 subscription right now you’ll receive a limited edition Chillys X Wavelength water bottle worth £20. You don’t have to be a maths whizz to work out that means you’re getting a years worth of premium reading material completely free of charge. Numbers of bottles are severely limited (and going fast) so make sure you get in quick.
It’s better for the environment
While we still feel it’s important to offer readers the chance to buy each edition on the newsstand, the delivery logistics and recycling of unsold copies all have a carbon footprint. While the amount of unsold copies being recycled has reduced dramatically since we went biannual, the newsstand still demands that we print more than we can sell. If all our regular readers subscribed and let us deliver the mag direct, we could save all that energy for trips to Indo.
Save yourself the faff
Do you really need another thing on your to-do list? A subscription allows you to scrub off a trip to WH Smith and lets the postman do the work. Plus, each edition will plop through your door (with the postage on us) before it lands on the shelves.
Don’t be tied down
Don’t like the idea of paying up front for the year? No problem, we’ve got an issue by issue auto-pay subscription just for you. Sign up now an enjoy all the benefits of an annual subscription, including free postage, safe in the knowledge you can cancel anytime (although we’re pretty sure you won’t want to.)
