It’s about the feel of the ocean spray on your face, the challenge of a new wave, and the sense of adventure traveling to a new area. Imagine yourself paddling out as the sun rises, waiting for a set paddling in and gliding down a perfect, unbroken face — it’s the moment of pure joy and freedom we all dream about.

Surfing connects you with a worldwide community. Surfers share a deep bond forged by mutual respect for the sea and the challenges it presents. This sport also encourages a healthy lifestyle, demanding physical fitness and mental resilience.

Essential Gear for Your Surfing Experience

When you’re planning to ride the waves, having the right gear is as important as knowing how to surf. The essential gear for your surfing adventure ensures safety and enhances your experience. At the top of the list is, of course, the surfboard. There are various types of surfboards, each tailored to different levels of surfers and wave conditions. Beginners might start with a longboard, which is more stable and easier to balance on, while more advanced surfers could choose a shortboard for greater manoeuvrability.

Aside from the surfboard, a proper wetsuit is crucial, especially in cooler waters. A good wetsuit keeps you warm while providing the flexibility needed to move freely. Additionally, don’t forget to bring along a leash to keep your surfboard attached to you if you fall off, sunscreen to protect from the sun’s harsh rays, and wax to prevent slipping off your board. Waterproof watches and rash guards are also beneficial, helping to monitor your time in water and protect against scrapes or rashes. Ensuring you have all of this gear will make your surfing safe and enjoyable.

Tips for Choosing the Right Surf Trip

Choosing the right surf trip can make all the difference in your adventure. When selecting a surf destination or a surf charter, consider your skill level and what you hope to achieve. Generally, beginner surfers are best served by surf camps or resorts that can offer coaching. Surf charters are great for intermediate and advanced surfers seeking regions with larger, more challenging waves to hone their skills.

Weather and water conditions are also key factors. All regions have surf seasons dictated by weather patterns, affecting wave quality. AWAVE Travel can advise on the best time to travel for your level. Additionally, think about the kind of environment you want beyond the waves. Some surf spots are secluded, offering a peaceful escape, while others are in bustling areas with vibrant local cultures and other activities.

When booking, consider companies that align with your needs and offer quality advice and tailored experiences based on skill level. It’s about finding the right balance of challenge, adventure, and relaxation to make your surfing experience unforgettable.

Charles Viellevoye 03/27/2024

Very professional team. Giulia is always on and have an accurate answer to all my questions. The boat trip was incredibly well organised. Nothing was missing.

Emily Bullen 04/03/2024

Professional and Top Notch! From the moment we started planning our trip AWAVE was responsive and professional. We had a lot of back and forth picking the perfect location and resort and James and Giulia were patient and helpful. The resort we stayed at, AYADA in the Maldives, was beautiful and relaxing- great for families and couples! It was perfect for us- we have 1 surfer in the family, he was able to enjoy the waves and we also were able to enjoy the reef and snorkel as a family. Our kids loved the kids club and the private pool on the beach villas was amazing. The alcohol is expensive if you don’t do full board but that is to be expected. Wonderful vacation and amazing travel agency! Definitely recommend!!

Cobus and Jackie Van Aswegen 10/19/23

awesome last minute trip which was well communicated, friendly crew and great surf guide! waves were not the best but we realised at the time of booking that it was end of season. crew could not be more friendly and willing to help all the time - chef prepared a wide variety of food and never any complaints on that front - thanks!!!... we will be back for more!

I've used Awave twice ... so far. This is the second time I've used Awave for a trip to the maldives. Stayed in 2 different resorts this time. They've always been incredibly prompt at replying and handled everything for us, making sure the 2 Resorts were in touch to get us transfered half way through our trip. At one of the resorts I even bumped into Giulia and Delia who were out there surfing at the time. There's no doubt in my mind that I'll use awave again if I'm booking a surf trip

Donald Ayres 11/06/23

Indonesia Surf Trip/ Java/Bali/Sumba - James Colston was my representative from AWAVE - I’m an older solo surfer and James was attentive, respectful, extremely responsive from the initial planning stages all the way through the booking. And he was so patient with all my crazy questions along the way. I couldn’t have been more pleased with James’s level of service. Thank you James

Alex Daish 12/28/23

Giulia was an amazing person to book with. I was overwhelmed with choices initially, but AWAVE knew their stuff and helped me with my options and even suggested delaying my trip so I could go to a certain hotel which ended up being the best decision I made all year.

Mickey 01/24/24

Giulia and James were always on line to answer any question or to give an advice. The Ayada resort is perfect both for families or for couples. We did not have waves as the season goes from April to September, but there are plenty options to have fun and good times. Highly recommended both Awave and Ayada.

James 01/30/24

The AWAVE team are knowledgable and helpful. Giulia is a very helpful and patient person to deal with, and do not worry, you can trust her. I had to delay my trip to Morocco due to unforeseen circumstances and Giulia was very understanding. I have just returned from having a fantastic week at Amouage in Taghazout. Thanks AWAVE!
