Road tripping with the Surfside boys!

Surfing with Chris 'Guts' Griffiths

Nothing beats a good road trip – all the excitement of heading off in search of great waves with a couple of mates. Hours spent on the road, with talk revolving around the hopes of what and where we might score. Will the swell be as good as we have hoped for? Will we get to surf that secret spot we’ve checked a thousand times before but never quite had it perfect? The anticipation builds as the hours and miles pass by.

Your plans have to be as fluid as the waves you are chasing. A slight change in the wind or swell direction means you re-route mid-trip to somewhere completely different.

And then you arrive at the coast and it’s time to see if you’ve read the weather charts correctly and made the right call. Will you find the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow that you’ve been seeking?

The excitement of the chase is often as rewarding as the prize you’re chasing. That’s the essence of road tripping!!
