Montauk’s favorite beach read is back. The Usual, a celebration of summer and homage to the east end is launching Issue 5, available at The Surf Lodge, Montauk; Lightning Bolt, LA; and J.Crew stores in New York and the Hamptons. Interviews include 5-time ASP world champion surfer Stephanie Gilmore; art enthusiast Bill Powers; artist Raphael Mazzucco; and musicians Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. Lightning Bolt’s Jonathan Paskowitz and area local Joe Termini weigh in on whose surfing village is better: Montauk, NY or Venice, CA. And we feature contributions by Forest Woodward, Morgen Maassen, Nick Hudson, Peter Maiden, and of course, our ding repair guy/therapist Jimmy Goldberg who coaches us on love, life and surf etiquette.
