A Future in Action Sports?

Future Network USA, the publishers of MacAddict, Guitar World, and X Box Magazine among others, may be diving into action sports with a couple trade magazines and a consumer title. Several former TWS employees are rumored to be involved. Maybe we do need a few more holes in our heads.

Foam Dancing
Steve "the great Zeldini" Zeldin's newest title has been on stands for a while, but we finally got a copy of Foam, the "girl meets beach" magazine. It's a hot little sister Water can be proud of.

Heavywater Magazine
Brandon Lee, Reid Inouye, and Rob Alston have launched a new magazine targeted directly at surfers who are into big waves. Heavywater? Isn't that what H30 Magazine was called?

Wave Good Morning
The makers of Wave Pillow have made it possible to check the surf without lifting your head off the pillow. Connected to a PC the pillow vibrates depending on the swell height. Talk about subconcious connection to mother ocean. Thanks,
