Huck celebrates independent culture – people and movements that paddle against the flow. Inspired by DIY principles and rooted in the rebellious heritage of surf and skate, Huck roams the globe to document grassroots counterculture as it unfolds, seeking out freethinkers who are a wellspring of new thoughts and ideas.
Since launching in 2006 as TCOLondon‘s premium youth culture channel, Huck magazine has tracked down extraordinary doers and invited them to share what they’ve learnt along their journey. From Dave Eggers and Miranda July to Mark Gonzales and Kim Gordon, Huck‘s co-curators take a DIY approach to their collaboration with the mag, revealing their own web of influences by celebrating the people and moments that inspire them.
Out on the countercultural frontlines, meanwhile, our reporters break stories before anyone else, providing a global map of youth-fuelled social change – from emerging subcultures that defy conventions to investigative journalism that challenges the status quo.
With 50 issues under our belt, a hardcover book and slate of original films, Huck sits at the centre of a switched-on community who crave original stories and quality journalism in print, film and online. At 71a, our gallery in London, stories spring to life as film screenings, exhibitions, parties and events. And while the print magazine hits newsstands worldwide every two months – packed with exclusive interviews, original reportage and award-winning photojournalism – the journey never ends, continuing as it does with daily content online.
Join us as we keep exploring. Keep paddling. Just keep paddling.
Nice words on Huck:
“A phantasmagoria of cultural relevance: excited, relentless, insightful. It’s easy to see they care and dial in the details, and all good things are in the details.” – Thomas Campbell, Artist
“Among snowboarders and skateboarders and others, to ‘huck’ is to throw oneself into a jump without inhibition (the term was inspired by the wild spirit of Huckleberry Finn). But in the British magazine of the same name, the boarding subcultures are but entry points for articles about music, politics and places all over the world.” – The New York Times
“Huck proves there is a future for magazines as beautiful, tactile objects made to be read then kept.” – Jeremy Leslie, Magculture
