You may be traveling solo purposely in search of some solitary 'me time' or your single status might be imposed because none of your surf buddies were free to come along. Either way, we have a crazily wide range of enticing solo traveler suited surfing trips which will have you running to pack your bags, whether you are stepping into the surfing world for the first time as a complete beginner or an experienced wave rider.
Sitting in contemplative silence at your own private pool sipping cocktails and watching the sunset over the very waves you have been screaming along earlier, partying with some new-found surf buddies at a funky surf camp or chilling on board a surf boat charter – whatever your idea of the perfect surf trip you can find it here.
There is plenty on offer in the luxury and ultimate luxury categories if you have decided to go the whole hog and pamper yourself silly but the largest chunk of our solo surf traveler options fall into the budget to mid-range categories and cover everything from resorts to road trips. So, whether surf paradise for you means dropping anchor from your live aboard surf charter or setting your own independent-minded schedule entirely with a beach front self catering base, rest assured you can find it here.
Destination choices will make you feel like a kid in a candy store whether you are looking for something close to home and familiar, idyllic and tropical or something far-flung and exotic for cultural immersion and a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
With such an enormous range of countries and surf regions to choose from your solo traveler surfing experience can be just about anything you want it to be. Fun and safe beginner friendly waves abound where, guided by a host of professionals and coaches, you can be initiated into the surfing world. Or you could take your pick of big name, iconic wave spots – perhaps you'd like to be sunning yourself at South Africa's J-Bay while making the super accelerated drop into Supertubos - one of the most famous and perfect right-hand points known to the surfing world? Maybe you fancy trying your surfing prowess on the world's longest left at Chicama in Peru or ripping it up in France at some of the best beach breaks on the planet? Whatever your break preference and whether you are in search of tropically warm waters or mellow longboard waves the solo traveler focused options include every type of wave for every level of surfer.
Perfect surf trips are not just about perfect waves but having just the right place to lay down your head each night and spend your kick-back chill time out of the ocean. Of course we all have a different idea of what is 'just the right place' but with such comprehensive and diverse accommodation options finding something to suit is not going to be a problem. A tent among the dunes to private or shared cabins on board a surf boat and a bunk bed in a dorm room to a tranquil retreat in a guest house – they are all here and much more besides allowing you to decide how much you retain the solitary or totally remove the alone factor of solo traveling.
Surf camps make up the largest number of our solo traveler surf trip options and are of course highly popular with lone traveling surfers looking for instant immersion into a social scene.
The solo traveler surf holiday category offers up something for all budgets, all surf experience levels and for every type of wave rider out there whether your weapon of choice is a body board, shortboard, SUP board or retro style longboard. There are even options which let you combine a surf and yoga holiday or escape the boys for a while at a girls-only camp.
Packages offered come in every shape and size too allowing you to tailor-make your own trip with exactly what you need or just as importantly eliminating what you don't need. There are options for those independent free-spirited souls who want simple accommodation-only packages but equally there are choices for those who want everything taken care of with accommodation, meals, coaching and/or guiding and a host of extras thrown in.
We're proud that we can offer solo surfers such a vast world of choice but we do understand that so much of a good thing can be more than a little confusing. If you're not quite sure where to start simply give us a call – we will be more than happy to help you find something which ticks off all your surf trip essentials list to arrive at the perfect surf holiday for you.
