Portugal's record wave and other top surf hotspots

With the world record of the highest wave to be surfed reportedly just smashed in Portugal, avid surfers will no doubt be heading over there to try their luck at riding its incredible waves. Pro-surfer Garrett McNamara looks likely to have ridden into the beaches of Nazaré on a 100ft giant, showcasing his skills and dare-devil antics to the world. 



But where else can surfers head for some guaranteed action? Holidays to Australia are unlikely to disappoint and right now, it’s looking pretty promising. February is littered with surfing tournaments including ‘Girls Go Surfing Day’, so it’s a great time for surfing fans to check out the professionals and hit the beach for some wave time of their own. The Gold Coast is a top destination for beginners and amateurs alike and with golden beaches and the summer sun to bask in all day, now is the time to visit for some much need winter rays. What’s more, as part of the DialAFlight Australia sale, there are savings of up to £650 per person on tailor-made tours! 

Surf’s up on the vibrant beaches of Brazil too. Holidays to Brazil offer a whole host of surfing options with a huge variety of waves, so a great pick if you’re just starting out or fancy making your way up slowly to the big ones! Some of the top surfers in the world often follow the waves to southern Brazil, which is a perfect choice from spring through to the end of summer. Head over in April and you may just stumble upon The 2013 World Waveski World Titles, held in Ceara, Brazil.

But if you’re planning on taking a holiday to the USA this year, California is a good option for wave hunters. Often compared to the climate of the Mediterranean, the weather in California boasts warm, dry summers, mild winters and while the sea is normally pretty chilly, it’s a great year-round spot! Plus the annual Mavericks Surf Contest sees some of the world’s best wave surfers embrace California and is not to be missed.
