Episode 34: John Brasen

John Brasen and Pacific Longboarder Magazine

In Episode 34 we speak with John Brasen, life-long Australian surfer and 20-year editor of Pacific Longboarder Magazine. John shares with us his harrowing tale of being resuscitated at Sunset Beach in 2018, early stories of growing up on the Gold Coast, and how he suddenly found himself as the editor of a legendary surfing magazine. We hear some great perspective from John on longboarding and running a magazine, with a fun look at where longboarding has moved (and returned) since the 1960’s. John talks about early surf trips to Java, Sumatra, Mentawis in the 1990’s as well as his own evolution in surfing and maintaining heavy stoke in the water.

 Thanks for sharing John’s ocean life with us. You can find pictures and video of John on his Facebook page and Pacific Longboarder Magazine Instagram page and website.
