The time has come. We’re finally giving female surfers the love they deserve in a brand-new, all-girls magazine, SALTED. The mag, created by the editors of SURFER Magazine, features the best female surfers on the planet, trips to the most idyllic locales, profiles, interviews, history, fashion features, and more. It’s is a much-overdue homage to women’s surfing, all made with the quality, authenticity, and top-notch imagery you’ve come to expect from SURFER.

Hitting newsstands August 14, SALTED is nearly 100 pages of uninterrupted female surf content in an oversized, glossy format. Find it at your local surf shop or bookstore. The digital version will also be available on the Apple Newsstand beginning August 6.

  • Adam

    Ya, how do we subscribe?

  • Anna

    Has anyone figured out how to subscribe? I have one of the magazines and i LOVE it πŸ™‚ Anyone anyone? please? I wana subscribe!

  • karen

    Excellent! Can’t wait to check it out! …And I really hope it’s not all about bikinis. I’d *love* to read about women’s *surfing* (and see photos of them actually SURFING, not just posing). Everything else out there about women’s surfing is demeaning — like it’s produced out of some male fantasy of beach babes, not out of the reality of women who purely love to surf.

  • jrenee

    Is it for females under 18? Why called a girls mag and not a womens magazine. Just wondering.

  • nathalie


  • Delila

    cool. how to subscribe?

  • JerseyJess

    When will it be available in hard-copy magazine format? Much more interested in having my daughter flip through the “real” pages than scroll through them virtually…thanks.

  • SURFER Magazine

    The magazine (the real, paper magazine) is on newsstands now (bookstores, surf shops, grocery stores). You can also buy a hard copy of the mag here:

  • desert_solitaire_524

    Can you tell me how I can subscribe to this new magazine Salted? None of the local bookstores here in the southern Arizona desert had it in stock.

  • Marji

    I think I recall back in the late 70’s or early 80’s you tried a woman’s surfing mag and it failed…I sure hope this one succeeds….

    Is Salted going to be just about surfing “Girls”? As a 40+-year old surfing woman, I’d sure love to see some something more than just cute butts (and yes, I know cute butts sell magazines). However, Oprah Magazine has a huge audience….plus the over 40 crowd has more disposable income for such mags….again, I’m just saying… throw me a bone – just a couple pages of some hot older woman surfing in every issue…and, yes, I know few if you can’t find any…jeez

  • susanmonroe

    it is a good thing to promote female surfing – we will be taken more seriously in such a male dominated sport if the ‘girl’ were dropped – the word ‘surfer’ entails not only males but females – all boys – all girls – all women – and last but not least, all men as well. that’s Carissa, Kelly and all of us.

  • jackie

  • megan s

    get it its own Facebook page. I just read the article about the popularity of women’s surfing and how to market it, so start there. Promote it where tons of women social network.

  • Coastwmn

    Cool but where are more issues?

  • Shish Fish

    What happened to Salted???

  • Hope Carlson

    I am so happy to have come across Salted at my local surf shop. I have never been so satisfied reading a magazine. Salted is everything I have ever wanted in light reading. It encompasses the style and vibe of surfing “like a girl.” Yet…I am wondering why I haven’t seen any other issues. Will Salted continue to be published? Do I really need to become “that girl” at the surf shop anxiously asking for the next copy? Will I ever be able to subscribe???

  • Ela

    more issues! PLEASE! I live in Germany but I would subscribe in an instant.

  • randy stockstill

    the mother of my daughter was a surf guide in mexico , my daughters three sisters all love the beach and surfing and one day my daughter Phoebe will be in the line up. thanks for the mag!

  • Kiana

  • Paige Blair

  • w haven

    Subscription yet?

  • surfer mom

    I want one on my coffee table not on my computer

  • LleaudSurfer

    looking forward to being able to have a hard copy……also, someone on fb seems to be stealing a lot of photo’s of the surfer site and claiming them for his own – be weary photographers!

  • Jen

    I’d like to subscribe

  • Jane

    Just tried to buy it for my girls and it is sold out. That was fast. How can I get a copy and do you have a subscription available?

  • Tasha Sherman

    Would love this to be a regular thing! Are you going to print more?

  • Dana

    Is this digital only? Is there a subscription option? Would love to subscribe but can’t see a way to do so, or even to purchase one! Would love to support an all female surfer mag — but can’t support it if I can’t buy it!
