A Call for Submissions

Here is your chance to add a significant publication to your resume: consider submitting surfing-related original research, case report, photos, stories, conference updates, or conference reports or letters to the editor to “Surfing Medicine” – the journal of the Surfer’s Medical Association.

Founded in 1987 by Dr. Mark Renneker and other pioneers in the field of Surf-Medicine, the Journal is being tweaked and modernized for the digital age. Like the modern quad fish we hope to retain the charm and character of the original paper version of the Journal, while improving performance and down-the-line speed.
