Catch the Wave!

The world's first wave garden has finally opened in Snowdonia, making waves in North Wales, albeit artificial ones. Set on a freshwater lagoon amidst gorgeous surroundings under the watchful eye of the nearby mountains, Surf Snowdonia looks set to serve up a real treat. As with most topical news stories, it got us thinking about holiday inspiration. So where is a good place to go to catch a wave?

Jeffreys Bay, South Africa

Home to what is widely believed to be the best right hand surf break in the world, Jeffreys Bay draws surfers from all over the world to catch it's legendary waves. It even boast excellent spectator conditions with seemingly limitless sunshine, and idyllic beaches. The main draw however, is the seemingly perfect wave - Supertubes. A powerful wall of water, that draws extra energy from the upper reefs, providing a perfect wave when between 4 and 8 feet. Jeffreys Bay also plays host to a thriving crafts industry and is enviable in it's position between nature reserves and rivers. A trip here will see you sample a vibrant local culture, great weather and, of course, superb waves.

The North Shore of Oahu is certainly one for the thrillseekers. Every winter brings with it a surge of sizeable (and occasionally dangerous) waves that experienced surfers love to challenge themselves on. As a novice surfer though, the advantage for you here is the wealth of experience that surrounds you. Oahu is the birthplace of surfing and the perfect place for your surfing experiences to begin with some lessons. Whilst you're here, it would be rude not to say hello to the Green Turtles and explore the depths of the waters with scuba and snorkel excursions.

Superbank, Gold Coast, Australia

Australia's Gold Coast has over 70km of beaches for you to sunsoak on before you even consider hopping on your board for a surf. When you do though, you'll be spoilt rotten with a consistent stream of waves pouring over four point breaks, separating the surf. Home to the legendary 'Superbank' where you'll find some of the longest rideable waves in the world. Mix it up easily with a visit to a local wildlife sanctuary or theme park if you fancy a day out of the water.

Why not add surfing to your Australian itinerary?
