    7 Surf Destinations For The Bucket List

    Dreaming about Surf Trips is important, like, really important. Or at least we like to think so. Having a bunch of places you dream of surfing is key to creating excitement and something to work towards. You’re better off spending your hard earned coin on a dream surf trip than a Foxtel subscription right?

    We always like to think that the excitement and anticipation of a trip in the making is equal, if not greater than the trip itself … Tough point to pitch when you’re being spat out of a tube in Indo, but it’s a nice concept nonetheless.

    Wave of the Day

    A few of our staff have started booking their 2019 surf trips with the guys at Wave Of The Day Surf Travel, so we thought we'd share where the team is headed and what boards they'll be grabbing for the trip!

    Wave of the Day

    Rob, Customer Support

    Where do you want to go? Waidroka Bay Resort, Fiji

    What is your ‘dream’ Wave of the Day? Frigates Pass, 4-6 foot and grinding..

    “Ever since I was a grommet and watched the Truman show, Fiji has been a go to dream destination of mine and that’s before all the amazing waves on offer. I’ve been to Fiji a bunch of times but really excited to go to ‘Waidroka’ as it’s the perfect getaway in my eyes; It’s got some holiday luxuries yet still has the roots of a classic Pacific Surf Trip. It’s surrounded by world class waves, a lot of which are way less surfed than some of Fiji’s most known spots – which is perfect for some quiet sessions!! If the surf goes flat, which it probably won’t, there is amazing diving close by which will keep the gills wet!” – Rob

    Talking surf trips, what’s your dream board for this mission?

    Mark, Marketing & Design

    Where do you want to go? Floating surf House, Banyaks

    What is your ‘dream’ Wave of the Day? Treasure Island, 4 foot, No one out, hahaha

    “I’ve done a bunch of Indo trips but I have not been up to the Banyak’s yet and everyone I know that’s been has loved it! Floating Surf House is such a unique style of accommodation and with waves straight out the front I’m real keen to get up there and check it out.

    I also kinda dig the idea of living on the water, it sort of resonates with my idea of an authentic trip in the islands; you know where you see locals living on floating barges, surrounded by the ocean pretty much… It’ll be pretty cool to be sat over the water at the end of each day, dangling my feet in the soup and getting a small experience of living poised over the big blue.” – Mark

    Talking surf trips, what’s your dream board for this mission?

    Hammo Pro Series 1

    Wave of the Day

    Dave, Web Management, Photographer

    Where do you want to go? The Maldives, Southern Atolls on ‘The Blue Horizon’

    What is your ‘dream’ Wave of the Day? Tiger Stripes, 4 foot, walling and perfect for a single fin.

    “Real keen to get over to the Southern Atolls as I’ve been really into my single fins and mid length boards of late. The waves over there are great for big open faces, perfect for my 6’8 Single fin.

    I also love film photography and when you have a bunch of mates on a boat, you surf for a bit, go grab the camera and shoot for an hour then keep the fins on and body surf…That’s my happy place for sure! Just being on a boat is the best, no distractions and pure focus on the ocean and having a good old time.” – Dave

    Wave of the Day

    Chrisso, Marketing & Customer Support

    Where do you want to go? PNG, Vanimo Surf Lodge

    What is your ‘dream’ Wave of the Day? A couple of little tubes at Yako with just me a few local grommets hooting each other into waves, that’s the dream.

    I’ve been super into my cold water trips this last couple of years and although I’ve had some troppo time in the Ments I’m keen to check out a new zone and have a bit of Island time. I’ve yet to go to PNG and Vanimo looks like an epic place to go with the missus, surf some super fun waves, read, get to know some locals and really enjoy some chill time in the jungle.

    I shaped my first board earlier this year, super fun, kind of performancey ‘Twin plus 1’ and the waves around Vanimo look so perfect for it!! I’m just frothing on a new adventure, heaps of time in the water and getting to surf some different boards in a beautiful setting!” – Chrisso

    Wave of the Day

    Kate, Accounting

    Where do you want to go? Jasper House, Sri Lanka

    What is your ‘dream’ Wave of the Day? – Hiriketaya party wave with my girls.

    “A couple of girlfriends did a Sri Lanka run and I wasn’t able to go so I’ve been itching to check it out as they keep yapping about how good it was. I’m real excited for the long days in the sun, fun waves and really just having some time away on the beach with a good book and a Pina colada …

    I’m also super excited to hop on the train, check out a few Tea Plantations and maybe squeeze in a trek or two. Oh, and the food … if I can handle the spice ;)” – Kate

    SUPERbrand Siamese Twin

    Wave of the Day

    Todd – Operations Manager

    Where do you want to go? Playground Resort, Mentawai Islands, Indonesia

    What is your ‘dream’ Wave of the Day? A Frames, Kandui, Rifles, Bankvaults… hang on is 4 dream waves too many??

    “The amount of fun waves on offer here is insane! Start the day off with some barrels for breakfast at A-Frames and you can’t go wrong. There’s plenty of options to score fun waves all day long here. Yoga and daily treks through the tropics are also on the agenda.”

    Misfit Fang

    Leigh, Content Creator

    Where do you want to go? Hollow Trees, Mentawai Islands, Indonesia

    What is your ‘dream’ Wave of the Day? HT’s, Rampy takeoff, throaty tube.

    “My Ideal surf trip is being posted on a tropical island, sippin’ coconuts between surf breaks whilst the missus does Yoga and Hollow Trees ticks all these boxes. Plus the wave looks like it’s paddle distance from the shore which gives you the freedom to surf when ever you want.”

    The Chippa Wilson Collection

    Chippa Wilson is undoubtably one of the most radical surfers of today, best known for his acrobatics above the lip and his heavy carves. But what is the gear that get's him there? Look no further.

    We are stoked to have the entire Chippa set-up available in-store so we thought we may as well throw it all together for you. Chippa is loyal to his long time shaper Matt Hurworth together they have seemingly mastered the perfect weapon for progressive surfing The Ruff Seas.

    Chippa's signature grip comes from the Octopus is real, a company he co-founded with fellow shred lords Dion Agius and Nate Tyler back in 2015. Chippa is far from the conventional surfer and as seen in his latest clip with Octopus he is riding a Twin + stabiliser (small rear fin) set up that himself and Neal Purchase Jnr designed with Captain Fin Co. Check out the entire Chippa Wilson collection below.
