REBEL FIN is the first international shop to offer EMOCEAN.
Emocean is a surf-centric magazine that champions diverse perspectives, radical creativity, relatability and empowerment, and especially the narratives of women, BIPOC and LGBTQ+ surfers.
This magazine is for those in search of an alternative reality. These are pages in wich to feel seen and understood if you have struggled to identify with the dominant cis white patriarchal viewpoint that surfing has been defined by since its western-world rise to popularity. No shade to he genuinely wonderful cis white men out there, we want you to be stoked on reading this too. It's just long been time for a different take on things.
The first issue centers around the "emocean" of JOY: The joy of being in the ocean with your people, the joy of relaxing into your authentic self in a space where you feel understood and supported, the joy of sliding into that perfect glassy beautiful wave, the joy of watching the water's surface turn into shimmer liquid metal as the sun dips below the horizon.
