Alex Dick-Read

Advisory Board

Alex Dick-Read never meant to be a surf magazine editor, but as a freelance journalist covering the Caribbean region for Associated Press and then Reuters from his home in the Virgin Islands, he just couldn’t say no when the dream job was offered. Almost ten years after starting The Surfer’s Path he still spends his time surfing, looking at photos of fantastic waves and editing all kinds of tales from surfers the world over, and still feels like the luckiest kid on the block.

In those years the surf world has become increasingly aware of the damage being done not just to our waves but to our whole planet, and he thinks it’s important that we all keep the pressure on, where ever we can, to stop the anti-nature madness that so defines our era. Surfing is the metaphor in which lies the answer.
