Backwash is an independent surf anthology with a free-thinking perspective and powerful moody photography. Series Eight director Mario Vassiliades along with six other founders created Backwash from their combined passion of surfing and travel.
Its stripped back, monochromatic style with strong editorial headlines and expansive imagery provides the perfect setting for their authentic stories and striking photography. Along with building flexible content layouts for the magazine’s post pages, Series Eight also equipped the site with a Shopify store for magazine purchases. Backwash plants a tree in County Clare in Ireland for every copy sold reflecting their belief of “what is left behind when the wave recedes”.
