North America’s ONLY glossy surf and beach lifestyle monthly magazine!

Freesurf Magazine has been reflecting the sunshine and sharing the stoke from the heart of the North Shore of Oahu – Mecca of the surfing world – since 2002. Freesurf is North America’s only full color glossy, monthly surf mag. And it’s totally FREE.

Hawai`i’s premier surf and beach lifestyle resource delivers industry news and breathtaking views from the cultural birthplace of surfing to the global beachgoing community. Specializing in stunning photography and fun features, Freesurf uses informative, captivating, family friendly content and beautiful photography to promote an active, youthful lifestyle.

Freesurf distributes 10,000 free copies each month to more than 450 locations in Hawai`i, Southern California, and on the East Coast. Freesurf’s core distribution is centered in the Hawaiian islands, where it is easily picked up at all Jamba Juice locations, numerous surf and specialty shops, and select military outlets, as well as at hundreds of SoCal and East Coast surf shops and gift box suppliers. Freesurf averages as many as 8 reads per pick up – that’s a lot of eyes – and tends to travel afar as the ideal free souvenir – that’s a lot of additional mileage – per mag for our advertisers!
