Wave Rider was a quarterly surfing magazine of the 1970s published out of Cocoa Beach, Florida. Founded by Gunnar and John Griffin, it was launched in 1975 and ceased publication in 1982. Staff photographers included Rob Battipaglia, Joaquin Garcia and Larry Marshall and also Sal Catania who was Photo Editor and staff photographer for a short period of time. Reggie Hodgson was the art director in the late-1970s. Wave Rider not only covered the international surfing scene but offered more inclusive coverage of the East Coast of the United States. In 1976 the Griffin brothers launched a sister publication called Skate Rider as skateboarding became more popular and a demand for more complete coverage was not being met by others. Both magazines would fold by the early 1980s as economic hardships were experienced worldwide.
