Many other authors who are not in this collection, including some of the earlier scholars in sgs work, were approached to contribute. Their work covers issues associated with other identity intersections including age and (dis)ability, indigeneity, masculinities, geopolitical spaces such as China and Papua New Guinea, tourism, localism, emerging surfing spaces such as lakes and big wave surfing, media representation, other sgs identities, surfing organisations such as surf schools and boardrider clubs, other board types and other erasures in history. With many good reasons behind why they could not contribute it is important to nevertheless acknowledge the abundant spaces where critical questions are being explored in rela - tion to sgs and surfing and undocumented practices are being noticed. At the time I write this closing chapter I also recognize the many ongoing challenges as old problems and issues appear in new ways and new challenges arise.
