Dear the next me,

I’m SURFING’s current intern. We are looking for you. Sadly the time has come and my internship is over. And although I see it unfeasible, someone must fill my shoes. It seems daunting but I promise, it is possible to become an intern at SURFING Magazine. The first step is making a résumé and sending it over. Show these guys what you got so they know you’re the one for the job. And don’t “To Whom it May Concern” that shit. Be real. You are also required to love surfing and be eligible to get college credit.

Your job as an intern will include, but is not limited to, the following duties:


· Conducting interviews

· Transcribing interviews

· Research

· Writing

· Attending events

· Drinking

· Organizing the office


Don’t worry though, you won’t have to get coffee. It’s already made.

The old you



We’re obligated to clarify that “drinking” is not officially an intern duty. Otherwise, yeah, what she said. Interested/interesting college students, please send your stuff to taylor (at) We have openings for editorial, marketing, and art direction interns. Please don’t be shitty to work with. —SURFING

    Wow, I am so stoked to have accidentally come across this webpage. I recently e-mailed SURF magazine asking about internship opportunities. They replied, and I am waiting to speak with my college adviser after winter break. Please contact me with more information on how to apply for this internship. You want someone true, well this is my dream. I have a true passion for surfing (though i’m not fantastic) but I do it for the beauty and spirituality. I have dreamed of this since I was a child. I’d love to hear back on how I could possibly better my chances on making this come true. Please contact me with further information.

    I would love to do this, but do I have to be a current college student?

    Hello! I am interested in your internship! I am wondering if I could have some more general information about it i.e. When it starts? Does it pay? etc.
    Thank you for you time.
    Have a great day,
