Be­hind The Cover.


Tracks - - Fix -

Peter Boskovic has tracked Mikey Wright’s tra­jec­tory from the time he was a fresh-faced kid from Cul­burra, liv­ing in the shadow of his older brother and sis­ter. With a lit­tle help from Bosko’s lens, Mikey has gen­er­ated a cult fol­low­ing over the past cou­ple of years. The cover was a hard choice. We couldn’t de­cide be­tween a Bosko shot of Mikey’s trade­mark grab-rail gouge, a sky-punch­ing air or a pro­file shot fea­tur­ing the most fa­mous mul­let in surf­ing his­tory. In the end we dressed surf­ing’s punk prince in pink and let him fly like a bat out of hell.
