Post thanks to Gath Nicholls find out more about his surfing travels here I just spent 11 days in Karang Nyimbor hotel near Krui in South Sumatra with a couple of mates and I thought I’d share my experience and some tips on staying here. Organisation and travel: How you get to Indonesia is up…

The hippie commune turned backpacker/yuppie haven of Byron Bay has long been a favored destination for surfers on Australia’s east coast. A short 45 minutes from the decadence of the Gold Coast, this New Age outpost might not be as trippy and pure as it once was, but it is probably a lost closer to…

 Mainland Mexico is one of the most consistent, swell-rich coasts in the Pacific, and the state of Oaxaca has a variety of waves and wave types to choose from. Add to that relatively mellow crowds, warm water, cheap cost of living and delicious food, and it is easy to understand why this has been a…

If ever there was proof that God is a goofy foot, Southern Chile is it. Endless sand-bottom points peel seemingly forever in front of rugged, beautiful backdrops that you have to see to believe. Some points are rippable, others are top to bottom barrels…and then there is Punta Lobos, one of the best left points…

There is more to New Jersey than The Sopranos and Garden State—it is also one of the most densely populated states in the US, which means crowds on land and crowds in the water. Luckily, Jersey also has one of the most surf-dense coastlines in the US—at least as far as number of surf breaks…

Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Connecticut are the US East Coast’s unheralded surf havens, hiding quietly in the shadow of headlining names like Florida, North Carolina and New York. But that isn’t to say that the New England region isn’t holding. In fact, these five states combined have more coastline than just about…

Although other regions might lay claim to seasonal epicenter status (think Oahu’s North Shore from November through January or Bali from May through July), Southern California is where the surf industry calls home. Magazines, brands, millions of surfers and billions of dollars have all flocked to this famous stretch of coastline, where top-level pros compete…

Although they share the same governor, Northern and Southern California might as well be two separate states—if not completely different countries.

And while seemingly every other surfer you meet down south has stickered-up…
