The Artful Surfer

Inspiration, Lifestyle, SEA, SHOP, SURF

Surfing is an art form. It’s finding freedom, spirituality and a connection with something far greater than yourself. Every surfer is different, as is every wave. But for a surfer, having the right board can make or break your time out on the water. Australian brand Nusa Indah Surfboards creates art for the oceans; bespoke surfboards designed to look as good as they make you feel.

Adventure, STAY, SURF

Surfing and summer tend to go hand in hand. So, what on earth is a surf school doing in Norway? Well, the story goes that in the early 1960’s two boys, Thor Frantzen and Hans Egil Krane, were working aboard ships that sailed all over the world. One day, the boys and the ship they worked on arrived in Sydney, Australia. After trying surfing in Sydney, they returned to Norway with a new found passion for surfing. By looking at the album cover of a Beach Boys album they copied the design making their own surf boards. And so, surfing in Unstad Bay began.

Surf with style in the Maldives

SEA, SURF

The Maldives: where perfect waves lap up idyllic tropical shores. The breaks are a little calmer than surf-havens like Indo and Hawaii but there are waves to suit everyone. June to August is best for those in search of big swells, while September and October provide consistency.  Stay in one of these luxury surf resorts for the perfect combination of riptides and relaxation.
