- Superbank, Gold Coast, Australia
My bucket list tour of the top 5 must-surf beaches begins in Australia on the gold coast, where perfect beaches stretch for miles, and the Superbank creates some wild waves and perfect tubes for enthusiasts.
Next, we go to Indonesia, which is stuffed full of top quality surfing spots. The smooth surfaces make it ideal for both seasoned surfers and those just starting out.
- Mavericks, California.
No list would be complete, of course, without Mavericks, California. Be careful, however. You’re sure to find some spectacular waves, but it’s legendary for a reason. Even expert surfers need to approach with a healthy dose of caution, but if you have the guts, you’re in for an incredible ride.
- Jeffrey’s Bay, South Africa
This one has it all, with separate sections for each epic wave. Did I mention this bay offers rides up to 300 meters long? It’s no wonder Jeffrey’s bay is a favorite destination for expert surfers from around the world.

Which brings us, finally, to Hawaii. The fame of these beaches is well deserved, and the waves, scaling over 6 meters above a perfectly designed coral reef, are bound to live up to the hype. Join scores of expert surfers who’ve dreamed of riding the Pipeline’s perfect crest.
