i was just reading about this new magazine thats coming out. i was interested, until i saw that its 35$ for four issues or 10$ for 1!!! why is it so expensive!! also, international shipping was 25$. thats seems wayyyyy overpriced to me. does anyone know why its so much, and also, is anyone going to buy it for that much?

Purchased my subscription months ago.. $35 a year isn't to expensive IMO.. Once you see it you'll know why!

More quality content/pics/features and less ads...

And yes, I pre-ordered my subscription a few months ago as well.

Just so you know, turning out a Mag, isn't cheap. It's actually a small fortune. When you build it, you need backing, otherwise your broke yesterday. I didn't care about the price, but the shipping price, wasn't what it should be. But, if they bring it, then I am over it. It's about time that something different was out there. I'm hoping, it's along the lines of a Surfers Journal....

I bought a subscription, and I think its not over priced at all. In fact its cheaper then some of the other mags that it is similar in style to and is of higher quality (imo). You're paying for quality. Everyone complains there are too many ads in WBM and Alliance, well ads are what make the mag so cheap. The Standerd has very limited advertising, and you are paying for more quality content. buy one issue. One issue can stand alone as a coffee table book. I think you will be blown away by the quality and will have no prob with a subscription after you see it.

So nobody got their copy yet. Whew...I was getting nervous. Started thinking I typed in the wrong address when subscribing.

Don't quote me on it but I think they shipped on the first.... just my guess though. you can prolly find it in the local Orlando shops, I would think they'd have it out. Has anyone gotten their hands on the first issue yet? What do you think? I only got to see the dummy version, and it was pretty awesome.

got mine yesterday! if you like looking at pictures, def worth it! it's like a giant collage and almost no articles.

What are the articles that are in there? Are they in depth? Or just a quick read? Details details!

I got mine today and I must say I love it. A lot of really great pictures, and I thought the Byerly article was very introspective. I also like the quick reads with a lot of the pics. Definitely a nice mag to have on the coffee table.

central florida business section in the orlando sentinel on monday had a nice article on joey and josh and their endeavor. They had a cool underwater picture of theirs on the front page of the section. They got mad props from Tony Smith at Alliance,the editor for WBM had no comment for the article though. sorry, don't have the specific link.

Do you guys think it is worth $35 a year?
Old     (electricsnow)      Join Date: May 2002       04-11-2007, 5:43 PM Reply   
chqwakeboarder, YES!

Mine finally came yesterday! For those of you asking if it is worth the $35 I'd say yes. I subscribe to a fine art photography publication and it is similar in price. The quality makes it worth it. Also, the first issue came with a free DVD of Asterisk 2.
I was looking at their website yesterday and came across this:


I'm glad I just took the plunge and subscribed when I did!
