We think surf travel – domestic or international – is just about the most fun thing a surfer can do. There is nothing like surfing a new spot, or one you have heard about all your surfing life, and you finally find yourself there in the lineup!
Here you’ll find helpful information about surf travel. We’ve put together and will continue to add relevant information for you the Adventurous Soul Surfer. If you have some FEEDBACK please let us know.
Here you’ll find stories about surf adventures – domestic and international. This is our archival collection of Surf Adventure Stories updated on an ongoing basis.
We’ve put together a surf calendar coded for the optimum time to be in certain areas of the world. The large wave icon means it’s the best time to go and you get the MOST WAVES. The mid-size icon means you’ll get some WAVES, but you’re taking a chance. The small icon means very FEW WAVES, not a good time to go. Of course, Neptune has the final say.
Stormsurf takes marine weather to a higher level. It’s all here, from their own detailed storm and surf forecasts for the Pacific Ocean, to surf reports and custom built tools linking you to all the best marine weather sources covering the planet. Access to wave models, buoys, satellite photos, weather models, wind imagery and marine weather analysis is quick, easy and free. We recommend this site as the best tool for the local and traveling surfer.
You can print this Travel Checklist off our site and use it to get you started. We’re not saying this is the mother of all lists, but at least it will get you thinking about what you might need to take on that surf trip.
How you go about packing your gear and surfboards can make a big difference in your surf travel experience. Drawn totally on our travel experience, we know how to make your surf travel experience better. We’ll tell you exactly how we believe it should be done, but leave room for your feedback. We like to say, from Mexico to Morocco, Costa Rica to California and all points in between – our system works!
