The Ultimate Where To List : [ The Complete Guide ]

So you’ve strapped your surfboard up to your roof of your car, you have your gear packed up and are ready to get freakin shacked but your next section is “where to surf?” right? This page is a dedicated directory of places to surf around the world. Please take note that this will be a work in progress. As of the time I’m posting this I only have 3 countries added to this list.

We receive traffic from all over the world, New Zealand, the US, and Australia has been our biggest source of traffic so we focused on these locations first. If you’d like to see your city added to this list (or not added) send me a message on Facebook.

It feels like we find new surf spots every single day from our readers. So this one’s gonna take me a while to complete, however feel free to reach out with spots all over the United States.

Surfing Jaco
There’s much to be said about the beautiful surf town of Jaco. Overall, the city has some great spots to eat with decently priced hotels to stay in.

Jaco isn’t the most popular location on this list but it does have some waves. Surfing Jaco is best handled on the South – Southwest typically causing breakers from the left and the right.

For the most part Jaco isn’t the most crowded beach, but when low-tide rolls around the locals flock to the beach.

Dominical Surf
Dominical is mainly beach break and demands a mid-high experience level when surfing. Waves break both right and left and the falling tides seem to be best.
