Summer Fun! The Rulers of the Sea Epicocity


The most exciting water sports magazine. Ever.


It is a big scary world out there, but one thing that should not be feared is water. Since 70% of the world and 90% of our bodies is made up of this substance, it is important to embrace this element for all it contains.

This magazine promises to do just that. Gush magazine is responsible for providing a professional perspective on water sports. It’s mission is to entertain readers with an overwhelming sense of excitement and experience through photographs. Gush is aimed to appeal to those who are between the ages of 13-45, and who already have a background in water sports. For the readers who are unfamiliar with water sports, it hopes to inspire and encourage into exploring water even further. Gush is staffed with people who have strong backgrounds and experiences with water sports, in order to provide true-to-life details that are realistic for readers to visually interpret. It will feature articles that focus on multiple activities that are possible in water, and provide testimonials and interviews from people who know these sports inside and out. All of the advertisements featured in this magazine will be for products and traveling opportunities to help further any water sport experience (for example: swim suits, kayaks, surf boards, etc.). This magazine is different from any other publication because it is a gush of life, water, adrenaline and experience. Gush is simply its name. It is the most exciting water sports magazine. Ever.

Thank you for choosing to read Gush. We hope you enjoy reading this as much as we enjoyed making it. Sincerely, Lauren Short
