Escape the crowds
Is your priority is to get away from the crowds?

For these options you may be required to travel larger distances – either by air, land or sea. In some cases below, there may be restrictions on the number of surfers to keep breaks uncrowded, but others may just be far enough away from the commercial areas and frequently traveled paths that only those with a sense of adventure bother going there. While some of these places are well-known, others are true new surfing frontiers – be one of the first people to surf these breaks!
