Editor Michael Fordham says,

The idea was simple. Let’s get together a collective of the most creative surfers in the world, rent a house in the wilds of the West of Ireland, go surfing and document events, reflections, waves and weirdness. Then let’s make a beautiful little book based on the trip. And let’s do it once a year, in a different place each time.

Paying dues to the past, but with a front foot placed firmly in the future, September reflects and evokes the full diverse beauty of the wave riding experience in word, photograph and graphic image. The first edition, published this autumn, documents a September surf sojourn by a crew of some of the most original and talented surf-oriented people from all over the world.

Surfers, artists, writers, photographers and illustrators including Dane Peterson, Tyler Hatzikian, Devon Howard, Jimy Newitt, Sam Bleakley, Easkey Britton, Sandow Birk, Jamie Brisick, Marcus Sanders, John Isaac, Alan Stokes, Tara Darby, Thor Jonsson, Spencer Murphy, Kieron Black, John Eldridge, Peter James Field, and many others have painted a picture of four weeks of the prime Irish surf season.
