Great Companies for Great Company
If you happen to have read up on our articles detailing ideal destinations for beginner and advanced surfers (see our Perfect Spots for Experienced Surfers and Best Destinations for Beginners articles), then you’ll likely be at least a little more familiar with where in the world you’re likely to experience the best kind of surf for your skill level. Still, this doesn’t really get you any closer to actually being in the sea with clear blue waters lapping at your feet and barrel waves rolling enticingly over the sunny horizon: you need a means to bridge the gap between your current location and your destination. This page details a number of different surfing companies that will take the stress out of having to deal with organising the difficult parts of your surfing holiday such as arranging for surfboards to be present when you arrive and finding convenient places to stay. Sometimes it is simply easier to let a company do this for you instead of making difficult travel arrangements yourself; it is hoped that this list will help you find the perfect surfing holiday company to get you where you need to go and back again.

Errant surf is another worldwide surf-based travel company that provides you with a fantastic glimpse of the best destinations for your perfect surfing holiday. The homepage greets you with a wonderfully elegant design and shows you some of the most popular destinations in mini-thumbnail form, giving you a circular snapshot of where other people are choosing to spend their surfing time. Loredo in Spain, Hossegor in France, and Cornwall in the UK are all present here, as well as many more. Errant Surf doesn’t limit you to only the most popular destinations however: it covers locations in Africa, Europe, Indonesia, Australasia, the Caribbean, the Indian Ocean, and Central America.
Pre-packaged and itinerary-driven trips are also available and include boat trips, gap-year excursions, and group trips. If you’re truly stuck however, you can speak to an Errant Surf expert with the dialogue box that pops up on the homepage: a very handy little feature that makes this site unique.

Surfer Living is a company that takes a different approach to facilitating your surfing travels. Instead of browsing through tables and tables of destinations, you are presented with a handy search option on the homepage which allows you to enter a particular destination, and arrival and departure date; you are then presented with a variety of options according to your specified needs.
Of course, the company wouldn’t deprive you of the opportunity to browse through the available locations – this can be done on the destinations section of the website. You can also view the “top destinations”, allowing you to determine where other people are choosing due to their particularly attractive or impressive nature. The locations include California, Bali, The Dominican Republic, and many more. Bear in mind that the website is set up in blog style and is therefore not quite as easy to navigate as those listed above. This doesn’t take away from the website’s useful nature however, and it should help you along the way to booking the perfect surfing holiday in some of the best destinations in the world.

There’s no better destination for surfing than Australia, a place where shirtless is the norm and not surfing is far from the default stance. Surf Camp offers a fairly rigid set of packages, all based on the length of time that one will take to complete them. Packages range from the 2-day ‘weekender’ experience through to the 5-day experience, the 7-dayer (also known as ‘the search’, and the 10-day ‘ultimate search’. If you don’t wish to commit to a block of days however, you can choose to enter into the regular daily surf lessons as well. There is even a package for high-school surfers as well.
The website’s design is pretty solid and is decidedly superior to many of the blog-based layouts out there. Though the package range is fairly prescriptive and doesn’t offer a myriad of destinations, Surf Camp is still one of the best surf-based experiences you can have whilst out in Australia.
