Wave Rider was a quarterly surfing magazine of the 1970s published out of Cocoa Beach, Florida.[1] Founded by Gunnar and John Griffin, it was launched in 1975 and ceased publication in 1982.[1] 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.
