Rush hour traffic at Tallows Beach in Byron Bay! 😂
As much as I love surfing in Australia the crowds can get hectic sometimes, especially when only a few spots are working! 
Still board short sessions in water like this aren’t something you can really complain about! 🤙

From wetsuit clad surf sessions in Morocco to boardies in Byron Bay - I’m stoked to be back in Australia! 🇦🇺
And with pumping cyclone swells and water his inviting I can tell this is going to be an epic trip! 🤙

Anyone else heading to Australia this year? 🌏

Just a couple of casual camels strolling down the beach - this is what surfing in Morocco looks like 🤣🐪
••••••••••••••••
Just don’t let the blue skies and sunshine fool you, the water here can be pretty chilly and you’ll need a 3/2 wetsuit this time of year, it’s worth it for the pumping swell though! 🏄‍♂️

Mint tea (aka Moroccan whiskey) basically fuels my surf trips here...it’s packed full of sugary goodness! 😍
It’s up there with mojitos on my list of favourite drinks from my travels 🍹
What’s been your favourite refreshment on the road...and please don’t say Chang 🤣

Swell, sunshine and surfboards - the perfect combo 🏄‍♂️
The ocean has been serving up some treats this week in Morocco and Anchor Point has been doing what it does best! 🤙
Even if you don’t surf you can appreciate how epic a day like this is! 🌴

Now that’s a room with a view 😍
Stoked to be waking up to some super fun waves here in Taghazout and being about to check it from the window on my @surfberbere apartment 🤙
Looking forward to some epic surf sessions over the next week! 🏄‍♂️
Who else has learning to surf on their bucket list this year?!

Ugghhh I hate early mornings - but getting out of bed at 4am isn’t so bad when you know you’re jetting off somewhere warm 🤙
Time for the first adventure of 2018...next stop Morocco 🇲🇦
Where’s your first trip of the year taking you? 🌏

Yewwwwww bring on next weeks swell! 🏄‍♂️
Just packed up my surfboard ready for my first adventure on the year - MOROCCO 🇲🇦
There’s some pumping waves heading that way so I’m joining the crew from @surfberbere for some serious ocean time 🤙
I worked there as a surf coach a few years back so I’m looking forward to checking out some of my favourite spots! 🌴

Nothing makes me happier than a day filled with waves - and Madeira certainly had some epic surf breaks! 🏄‍♂️
Even if you don’t surf this island is stunning to explore and you should definitely put it on your bucket list! 🌏
Check out more of my drone shots on my other profile @stokedfortravel 🤙

I’d have never of thought my final surf session of 2017 would have been in Madeira of all places! 🏄‍♂️
In fact I had never heard of the island until a few weeks ago!haha! 😂
It’s an epic place to explore though and packed with amazing surf breaks - definitely lives up to its nickname of the Hawaii of Europe! 🤙
Any of you guys visited here before? 🇵🇹

Longtails are one of my favourite modes of transport - there’s nothing quite like pulling up on an amazing beach on one...it’s straight out of a postcard 🌏
And if you’re looking for the perfect longtails shot then Railay Beach is hard to beat - especially if you get there early before the crowds arrive 😂

If there’s one thing I absolutely love about travelling around Asia it’s the abundance of culture.
From the golden Buddha statutes and the temples to the amazing local street food 🌴
Asia in general is just such an amazing bombardment of the sense and you can’t really comprehend it until you experience it for yourself! 🌏
If you’re thinking of travelling around South East Asia anytime soon head over to my site (link in bio) for heaps of advice on everything from budgeting and where to go to how to get around! 🤙

Out of all the temples I’ve visited in Asia Wat Arun in Bangkok is one of my favourites 🇹🇭
With gleaming white tiles and some epic photo spots it’s definitely one to check out before you get templed out 😂

Getting in amongst the big blue freediving on Gili T in Indonesia 🐠
This island is pretty epic, with heaps of turtles cruising around the shallows on high tide and just all round good vibes 🌴
Definitely worth checking out if you’re heading to Bali anytime soon, it’s a 3 hour ferry ride (which can sometimes be sketchy!) but certainly worth the effort for some serious island time 🤙

One of my favourite shots from my @indtravel Trip of Wonders adventure - @_febrian putting his musical talents to the test at the palace of the King of Ubud! 🎵
Admittedly I do spend a lot of my time in Indo just chilling on he beach and surfing but that trip certainly opened my eyes to what’s on offer elsewhere in Bali and Indonesia as a whole. 🇮🇩

Does it get much more Thailand than this?! 😂
Ok ok so admittedly this is a super cliche shot, but can you really blame me - Railay is straight out of a travel magazine! 🌴
I forgot how much I love this part of Thailand, certainly somewhere I recommend you add onto your bucket list! 🌏
Just a short ferry ride from Phi Phi or a long tail from Krabi it’s the perfect spot to unwind, enjoy the views and even rock climb 🤙

Definitely one of my favourite ever dives ❤️
Within 5 mins of descending into the big blue @cinnamonhotels Ellaidhoo we were chilling just feet away from these magnificent Grey Reef sharks making the most of the cleaning station 🦈
I absolutely love sharks and to spend a dive surrounded by them was just amazing - the Maldives is quickly becoming my favourite country to scuba dive in! 🇲🇻
Thanks to @girlsthatscuba for the epic shot - actually a screen grab from a video on the new @gopro Hero 6...check out my latest blog for the full review! 📷
