Help Save The Encyclopedia Of Surfing Now

by The Editors on November 30, 2017

While reading Matt Warshaw’s plea for the $30,000 he needs to keep the Encyclopedia of Surfing up and running we were reminded of an old National Lampoon magazine cover. You know, the one with the cute dog with a gun to it’s head and the words “If you don’t buy this magazine, we’ll kill this dog.” Because, you know, that’s basically what Mr. Warshaw is saying:

Well, this is a tough one to write, and I’m not going to sugarcoat it. Encyclopedia of Surfing is underwater. We need to raise $30,000 by December 31, or the whole online project—Encyclopedia, History of Surfing, Above the Roar—goes away.

The irony of course is that it isn’t even possible to read his whole plea without first becoming a subscriber. Guess that’s how the closed web works. If you like what Mr. Warshaw is doing and want to help him keep curating the official history of surfing and making it available to the world then please, by all means, contribute to his efforts. You can do that by clicking here and donating whatever you’d like. Again, he only needs $30,000 by December 31, 2017.
