Does not work at all - save your money

This app does not work at all. Even deleting and reinstalling will not let you download any issues of your subscription - it does not recognize you as a subscriber at all. The app is completely broken and does not work...period.

Doesn't work

The company emailed me saying that they are aware that the app is not working for many people who bought the subscription but, as I purchased it through iTunes, it is not their responsibility to reimburse me. Looks like I'm out $9.00.

Can't access my subscription

I totally wasted 8.99. Until they fix this app my purchase was for nothing. I've uninstalled the app. Done everything the FAQ says to do but nothing. The "restore my purchases" fails. To make matters worse there is no contacting them so I'm forced to give them a 1 star. I'll change it if they fix this app. I was happy until the app failed.

Great app

This is a great app, I just wish there was a easier way to read the pages. Maybe something similar to the Apple News app?


New app works great!

Should be included for print subscribers

This looks like it could be great app but fact it's not included free for print subscribers is cheap and disappointing.

Read if u surf

If u surf this is for u any surf needs read this


Great app. Great style and magazines.

Used to be good

It was worth the price when the pages fit to the full screen of the phone. Since the update ot doesn't fit the full screen anymore and it's lower quality

Surfer mag app

I have all kinds of issues to look at where ever Surfer mag is rad Thank you for the informative stories and stunning pics that inspire me to get in the water that much sooner Izzie

Always Informed About the Best Surf

I love reading the electronic versions so much more than the paper versions, it's like the pages are alive and they jump out at you. It's almost as if you are on the wave. It's also much easier to carry multiple electronic copies with you than all those paper copies.

Keeps getting worse

Horrible graphics when you zoom in pictures or simply resize the page. Makes me wanna go back to print.

Fix app asap plz

I downloaded this app bc I love this magazine, but it won't even open!! I'm rly disappointed by this, so PLEASE fix this bug soon

Doesn't work

Arrghh. This F'in app does not work. Come on people - all I want to do is read my surfing magazine and this app won't let me do it

App is ruined

Resolution on the pictures is now ruined by the update. You can no longer zoom in on the amazing pictures for great detail, they are all pixelated. I used to read through every page and now I don't even use the app anymore because the new format makes the magazine unreadable. Please go back to the old format this new update is awful.


Paid for a subscription and it worked for a while. Now the app just show one page that says TEN - The Enthusiast Network. No other error message, navigation or instruction. Just left me hangin'.


I really want to love surfer on digital newsstand. But with this most recent update, I am severely disappointed. First. The scaling of the app makes extra real estate on the 6+ completely unusable. Second. When trying to zoom in for a closer look at the amazing photos all the images are SUPER low resolution. This was not the case on previous versions. Please fix scaling and image resolution and I will gladly 5 star this app. Otherwise it's back to the real newsstand.

Works perfectly

Main app works great, content of magazine is fantastic as always. However, I do hope that Surfer magazine takes a look at how mags like National Geographic have taken to the digital format. Basically, I'd love to see a digital magazine that incorporates short videos, pictures that can easily be clicked on and blown up, text that is easily readable (where you don't have to zoom in and jump around the page to read an article). This is such an amazing mag and I hate to see it using the same paper format on a digital device.

Don't buy a subscription

My subscription doesn't work. It's a waste of money!

Paper subscribers

I am currently a paper subscriber and would love to be able to use the subscription i payed more for to be able to use the digital edition and not have to pay again. I do like the fact of the paper in your hands but it would be nice not to have to carry around this big magazine all the time. Please give us at least a discount or have a way we can get the magazines

Only advice

1st of all, this is my favorite magazine and I am super happy with the quality of the magazine on my iPhone 5. However, it would be cool to see the magazine further optimized for iPhones by adding a video feature like Skateboarder mag did, and potentially also adding a text view feature (since sometimes it's hard to read in page view). Also, just for kicks mimic the design after The Next Web's iPhone magazine and it would make this newsstand app one of the best in the world.

Fix it please!!!

Updated and now black screen, you guys need to fix this so we can see the issues we subscribed to. Taking way too long.

updated and now nothing

took the most recent update and now I get nothing but a black screen and white title bar. I want my issues back!

Amazing app

Update for iPhone 5!

Update for iPhone 5 please. Other than that works great on iPad.


Such a sick app I get all my back ground s from this and I read it while I'm traveling

Loyal customer, but no respect?!

Love this magazine and have been a subscriber of the paper form for years. But your going to tell me now I have to pay more!? I'm happy you're finding a larger audience, but why are going to really burn the subscribers that were reading before the iPad was invented? I have no choice but to cancel my paper subscription. Thanks!

Not worth it

I already have a subscription but they make you pay for the digital version. Come on....

Surfer Magazine

Love it! :)

Love it!

I love the beautiful photography! Great app!


I love this magazine & now I can get all their content on this beautiful app! Awesome!

Very useful

I like app very much.

Free July issue!

Downloaded the July issue because it was free. It's not just the print magazine in digital format, it has some interactivity including videos from Quicksliver. The Photo Annual is only 99 cents... Think I'm going to take the plunge. Can you imagine the images on an iPad?

This rocks, just like the mag

All the great stories and photos from the mag, but in a beautiful digital presentation!

Surfer Mag

Love the quality of pics and updated info.


SURFER is by far the best surf magazine out there. Stoked I can get it on my iPad.


It's great knowing you have the best surf mag in the world, in your pocket at all times! $8.99 is a steal for a year subscription! You're losing money not having this.

Still the best surf mag

Surfer has always been my favorite surf magazine in the world and this iMag proves it always will be. Rich with culture, history, and a perfect blend of todays progression, the stories told in Surfer are all I need to stay stoked. Now we can even watch these stories come to life with video extras! Its pages created the entire surf industry...you gotta respect that! Good work Surfer Mag

Great Magazine, Great Experience

This is a awesome mag and I love the app. It's definitely the best surf magazine and surf app out there. Five Stars. The other magazines need better photographers, very lack luster. Way better than the mag I shoot photos for.

Well worth it!

Great magazine! Amazing photos, the best writing in surf, compelling stories and personalities...Much better quality than all the other mags. So glad it's finally available on my phone/iPad. Definitely worth 8.99 for a year subscription!
