World's 20 Best Places For Surfing

For centuries surfing was a central part of ancient Polynesian culture. Surfing is a surface water sport in which the surfer rides a surfboard on the forward face of a wave, which is most often carrying the surfer towards shore. Waves suitable for surfing are found primarily in the ocean, but not all places are suited for having a good surf.


Recently, National Geographic released the list of World’s 20 Best Surf Towns. According to NatGeo, “A great surf town is the nearly magical sum of consistent waves, inviting accommodations, friendly locals, fun nightlife, delicious food, and plenty of activities should the ocean go flat.” Now take a look at that list where surfing could be a real fun...
