John Witzig is an internationally renowned surf photographer and journalist. A native Australian, he contributed his first article to Surfing World Magazine in 1963; a controversial 1967 cover story in the U.S. magazine Surfer cemented his international reputation as an important commentator on the sport. He edited Surf International and in 1970 co-founded Tracks, a groundbreaking journalistic Australian magazine that The Surfer’s Journal publisher Steve Pezman called “maybe the hippest youth culture magazine being published in the world at that time.”
