Surfing Medicine Archives

Surfing Medicine has always been a pier-reviewed publication, which essentially means the articles are submitted and then handed out to surfers hanging around under the pier to see if they meet standards. But seriously, they’re full of great information, so relax and enjoy the past issues.
