Whether you are a surfer or not doesn’t matter. Most of us are influenced by surf culture. When in the beach, a lot of us would love to do in a surfer fashion or speak in surfers’ language even if the best thing we can probably do at the beach walks barefoot on the sand. Though every surfer’s desire is to have the best possible wave to ride, non-surfers’ love the waves, too. So here some of the best surfing spots in the world that you can include in your bucket list.
The Island of Tavarua itself is a beautiful island that has a lot to offer to every beachgoer. Unfortunately, Cloudbreak is only for hardcore surfers as the brutal waves can reach as high as 1,600 meters off the coast. But if you are a newbie, fret no more. You can visit the other sides of Tavarua Island for kite-surfing, diving or even just get tan while reading.
One of the heaviest and most notorious waves is found in Pipeline, a surf reef break located in Hawaii. The waves here can reach as high as 9 feet or 3 meters. Also, this place is only recommended for seasoned professional surfers and not for newbies. So if you want to ride the waves here, keep practicing.
Siargao is so beautiful that it contains the largest mangrove forest reserves in Mindanao, the second largest island in the Philippines. Its wind and current are coming from the Pacific Ocean. But surfing in Cloud Nine is another exclusive one for pro surfers as the waves can "break skins and bones apart". Siargao is known as the "The Surfing Capital of the Philippines" and Cloud Nine is the site of the annual Siargao Cup, a domestic and international surfing competition.
The Samoan Island is located in the South Pacific Ocean, northeast of Fiji. It offers warm waters and pristine tropical paradise and best quality of waves. The best time to surf here is from April to October when big waves are created by the amazing blows down near Antarctica.
