Before the summer crowds arrive in their droves and the temperatures rise to baking, spring is a really nice time to get away for a surf trip. The quieter waves and the pleasant weather provide the ideal conditions for building surf confidence and getting your mojo back before taking on a full summer of surfing back home.

In spring time, Portugal, Lanzarote and Morocco are a great option for surf and sun or for a bigger adventure, treat yourself to a long-haul surf trip to the Maldives or Bali for ultimate paradise.

At these destinations, whether a beginner, intermediate or expert surfer, surf camps, retreats and hotels are a great way to make the most of the surf on offer. Waves and surf spots are specifically selected for your surf ability, so no scary situations where you feel out of your depth. It’s all about having fun, no matter your ability.

For those travelling on their own, surf trips are a great way to meet like-minded people and find that buddy to take on the waves with and explore the local areas alongside. Who knows, maybe you will become surf and travel friends for life!

It’s not all go-go-go, these trips also offer stunning accommodation, daily yoga sessions, delicious meals and apres-surf drinks.

So if a boat charter in the Maldives, a yoga retreat in Morocco or a women’s only surf trip to Bali piques your interest, read on to see the surf trips to take this spring.
