We built this site and the Local Surf Communities on this site to provide a free resource for surfers around the world to exchange ideas, gear, and find local information for surf vacations and travel. In addition to our Surf Communities, we aim to offer the finest surf packages and travel products as part of SurfingList Travel from areas we have visited and recommend to our friends.
The local sites provide a filter so everything linked to that page is from that local area as well as any surf vacations we recommend and are selling to that local area. The main home page is a worldwide resource with no local filter.
Travel at SurfingList.com
We offer full service travel to a growing number of surfing destinations worldwide. We can provide you lowest cost flights, ground transportation, and bookings for a variety of surfing trips / vacations. These are surf trips and destinations we have travelled to and each of these trips are recommended by us. Our online store also aims at providing the necessities for your surf travel. We hope you enjoy these surf trips as much as we have!

Surf Videos, Slideshows, and Photo Albums
The Surf Videos page contains short videos we liked and found in different places on the internet. If you have any recommendations, please send them over. The Slideshows page contains slideshows from trips we have taken and are mainly photos taken by the staff and friends. If you would like any short videos or photo slideshows you created / took to be posted to the site, please send us an email and we will check out your content to see if it will work well on our site. We will give you the author / photographer credit for your work. Personal / Private and Public photo albums are also available on the site. To get there, follow the Photos link from the header bar. For personal albums, you will need to create your album and then can specify whether it is private or public by going and Modifying your album. To upload photos, simply click on upload file from the menu and specify which photos you want to upload. You will next be asked to specify which album you want the photos to belong to and whether you want to input a title and description. Admin approval (usually hapens within 24-48 hrs.) of all public photos is required so the photos won't appear immediately. Please do not upload any pornographic photos as they will be removed and you will be barred from the site.
