CARVE is Britain's biggest, boldest and best selling surfing magazine.

The app gives you access to the full version of the mag plus video clips relevant to the features (which are admittedly hard to fit in the paper version!)

It's the usual mix of world class photography and witty articles all stuck together with easy to navigate design.

So if you want the best content the UK and Ireland have to offer by Europe's leading surf photojournalists, as well as the hand-picked cream of what's going on in world surfing, check it out!

Long awaited but excellent update

Love Carve and was disappoined initially with this app earlier this year. Its suddenly had a load more issues, subscriptions and interactive stuff added and seems far more stable, so all in all a great mag and finally with a great update!

Good Editing and Articles

I have been a subscriber of serving magazines for the last 15 years. It's suffice to say that I have maintained my subscription with CARVE magazine because by my experience it's well edited and has always got interesting articles. I love the fact that it has links to movies in certain articles. I have not maintained my subscription to the other magazines because I think they are just too commercial. If you want to subscribe to a Surfing Magazine I recommend you try CARVE first.

Paid for nothing!!

I had been reading Carve happily on my iPad2. BUT when I replaced that with a 4th Gen iPad, Carve no longer recognises my subscription! I have emailed them and as requested, sent them my iTunes receipt but they have since not responded back to me! Even though I have repeatedly contacted them. So the result is, I have paid in full for a subscription which I now can't access jack! Avoid Carve! Now having to result to contacting iTunes directly to get my money back.
