The Perfect Wave is a surf experience company with a simple philosophy “to create a trip of a lifetime, every time.” Our goal is to give you the same amazing adventures we have been fortunate enough to experience ourselves, and turn you into a Raving Fan.



We are the world’s largest surf travel network with teams of surf experience specialists ready to offer YOU our extensive and in-depth knowledge of the international surf holiday industry. We are organised globally, with offices in Australia & New Zealand servicing Asia & the Pacific; UK & France servicing the entire European market; as well as representative offices in the USA, Japan, Bali & the Maldives.


There’s a fairly common misconception that booking a trip with a full service travel specialist is more expensive. We guarantee it isn’t with our Best Price Guarantee. We have spent years developing relationships with the best operators to get YOU the best deals. ALSO, we’ve created the only surf trip audit system, based on our experience running our own 5-star resorts & boat charters using our 20 Point Checklist to ensure we’re working with the best operators.


Somewhere around the world right now, someone is scoring the perfect wave! It could be from a deluxe surf charter in the Mentawai or Maldives, on a barrelling reef break, at a luxury resort on an isolated island in the South Pacific, or on a perfect point break in front of a full-service surf camp in South Africa, Morocco or Mexico!


We have found our perfect wave and we are here to help YOU find YOURS. So please give us a call or send us an email to get YOUR dream trip started today.

Barry Teeling
Hey, I’m Barry and I only learned to surf when I was 30 years old in Sydney. It’s never too late to learn! I’m 41 now and would consider myself an advanced long boarder able to side step, hang 5 but struggling to hang 10 as yet!! Surfing has brought me all over the world and one of my favourite spots is the Maldives where the waves are so predictable which l love. My absolute favourite is the Mentawai where I got some of my biggest waves last year at A-Frames. I’m living in Cornwall now and I lived in Australia from 2004 to 2012, then Hossegor, France from 2012 to 2015. If you want to know anything about boat trips I’m your guy! ;o)
Suzi Allen
Hi, I’m Suzi and I am a director of The Perfect Wave Europe. After having surfed, worked & travelled around the world for the past 20 years, I’ve found the perfect job! I spent my gap year learning to surf in Hossegor, then went back to uni to study French, Spanish, Portuguese and German.  I spent my third year in Uni studying and surfing in Mexico, a few months in Costa Rica followed by 6 months studying in Brazil. My adventures really got started when I graduated and got a job in Galicia. In 2001, I lived in Australia for 18 months, followed by a few years in Bali. Sailed across the South Pacific through the Panama Canal to Tahiti in a 12m sailboat, then back to reality in Europe where I settled back down in Hossegor. Want advice about where to surf in the world? You’ve come to the right place!
Victoria Yeo
Hi, I’m the Senior Travel Consultant with 16 years of experience under my belt. I’ve been working in the travel industry organising not only round the world backpacking trips but also luxury bespoke holidays. I do love a challenge and to put my travel knowledge to the test! Over the years I‘ve had the opportunity to travel the world from California to Morocco to Portugal and even China with my surf coach boyfriend and mini ‘Wahine’ daughter. Whatever your request, I can use my skill and passion for travel to get you on your ultimate surf adventure. Did I mention I’m the expert at organising Surf Honeymoons? I’ve been learning to surf for a while now, I have the bug and you can find me on the Cornish beaches trying to catch my first wave.
Lars Bornhöft
Aloha! I‘m Lars, but my friends call me Larsenhausen. I live with my family in the Canaries and we’ve always been a true surf travelling family. Now my daughter is in school so we only get to travel once or twice a year for a couple of weeks at a time.The rest of the year I love organising trips for surfers of all levels and selling the dream, which I used to live myself…
One of the best feelings is to enjoy a great session with friends in the water and also get amazing feedback from stoked surf travellers returning from a trip of a lifetime.
