World’s 50 Best Surf spots2013-07-01
Maybe you surf, maybe you don’t. It doesn’t matter. Everyone who’s been to the beach in the last 50 years is influenced by surf culture. If you’ve ever listened to a Beach Boys record (most of the guys in the group didn’t surf) or donned a pair of baggy shorts or looked wistfully out at the breakers and dreamed of an endless summer of waves and bonfires with the perfect surfer guy or girl on your arm, you can claim a connection to surf culture. That’s why even if you’re the type who sits on the beach with your toes planted firmly in the sand, the world’s best surf spots still matter. To get you to them, we asked the editors of Surfing Magazine to help us compile picks for the world’s greatest surf spots (our top 10 is heavily influenced by theirs), adding them to a mix of contributions from pro surfers and our own experiences.
