Tasmania is an island State off the South Eastern tip of Australia. The
surf here can be as good as anywhere; from the wild and powerful swells
of the west coast - uninterrupted all the way to South Africa - to the
refined swells of the East breaking at reefs, points and river mouths
from one end of the coast to the other, and then there's the perfect points
of Storm Bay. Clean waves can also be found at white sandy beaches all
around the State; somewhere is always offshore.
But then the winter can be cold and many of the breaks are hard to find;
some requiring 4WDs, boats, long walks, a good relationship with the local
land owners, or all of the above! The weather is also very fickle and
many breaks require a number of factors to come together in order to work
properly. Even with local knowledge surfing here can be a very frustrating
activity - without it you had better be lucky.
Check out some of these photos and video clips and see for yourself how
good it can get. If you want to taste the surf here for yourself on your
new Stranger custom then we can arrange to have your board ready for you
when you arrive and we'll direct you to the best surf available for as
long as your visit lasts. If we can get away we might even come for a
wave with you.
