The southern atolls of the Maldives is still a very untouched and isolated area when it comes to surf exploration, deserted islands surrounded by pristine reefs, and long period Indian Ocean swells unleashing endless amounts of energy everyday. Sean Holmes and his crew of South African frothers were more than ready
Portugal, Morocco and the Canary Islands are fantastic options for a quick weekend or weeklong springtime surf getaway from the UK and the colder, less wave-rich regions of Europe. The weather is mild, not too hot, nor too cold. There are still plenty of swells from end of season low-pressure systems in the North Atla
Unseasonably Solid! The SE swell that hit the East Coast mid month was biggest on the south coast of NSW. That's not to say beaches in Sydney, Newcastle, the north coast and even SE Qld didn't enjoy the drought breaking swell, it's just that southern NSW was the epicenter.
Fresh update from PNG Explorer. We have just returned in from a great trip with a even greater group of people. Waves have been non stop for the last ten days which is why we will keep this png surf report short and let the photos do the talking!
Day one was a little surreal with no boats around and a 3-4ft building swell offering up some great waves at Icelands all to ourselves.We headed south from the tip of Sipura, Mentawai Islands, down to Lances Left and enjoyed consistent offshore 2-4ft glassy walls with the occasional tube on offer.

Club Med Kani provides the ultimate luxury surfing experience in the Maldives.

Thanks to those same storms dropping silky white Japow on Japan, epic new swells were brought to Papua New Guinea. So how is PNG surf in December?
We figured we'd take them fishing at one of our hidden jewels, also home to some of the clearest waves in the country, and show them all PNG has to offer
As I packed my surf gear for the upcoming trip surfing in West Sumbawa that afternoon, the question gets asked again: why do you bother going on surf trips
