|Ahoy avid readers!|
Quite right Marthinus. The cost to print a magazine of this quality is pretty hectic so big up to the man who went and put his cash where his heart is and to those that have jumped at the opportunity to support it! You guys may be wondering why you can't get the mag at your local PNA/CNA..? The nature of the distribution network just does not allow for the 'speciality' magazine. Most magazines in SA belong to one of two publishing houses who distribute a dozen different titles simultaneously spreading the cost of distribution between them. For a stand-alone like us, we are totally reliant on you guys involved in the sport to share the stoke and spread the word and so far you've have been awesome! If any of you have some bright ideas to increase the distribution - hell, let us know! And yeah, roll on the subscriptions!

|"Im going to spread the love now and camp outside my nearest surfstore so can be the first to get my hands on one when the shop opens to avoid the queues"|
Or alternatively, you can subscribe.. haha..
People must remember, most of the money a magazine makes is not from the the amount of copies that they sell but from advertising, and what attracts advertisers is the amount of guaranteed subscribed readers a magazine has.
So rather take out a subsription on the mag than buying it from a shop.

|Just wanted to say to everyone a big thanks for the massive support. On the secret spot issue we have a disclaimer of sorts in the mag. Check it out, and if people still aren't happy, what can we do? can't please everyone...hope everyone enjoys the mag. And a big Thanks to the team of Sampi, Mike, Kelly and Larah. I think everyone did an excellent job. Enjoy.|

|Hi there Sixty 40 (Mag)! Stoked to see that there are still guys out there who persues the dream of making something come true within the South African Bodyboarding community. It is just that I know of some [edit*] crew who are NOT happy with the front cover picture, due to to fact that some secrets are best kept secret. Otherwise I am also glad to see that the magazine is a team effort, something that - in my opinion - the previous two magazines did not have. I wish all the best to Ian Kruger for his effort and also to all those who will be contributing to make this magazine a success. I cannot wait to get my 1st copy! All the best!|

|To Ian and the rest of the team, good on you guys! Stoked to know that we are going to have a mag again!|

The international sub includes airmail postage so as fast as possible. The mag is in final stages (all printed - being bound and bagged) so as soon as it's ready the first batch will go to Factory7 a week before the release date and be mailed to subscribers so we're aiming at pretty much simultaneously. That's the plan! Let's see how Africa post does!
Shot for leading the way!
