Bounded by 70% of the water in the earth, it is not surprising why water adventures advance through times, such as surfing. It became a well-known sport by almost 10 million people around the globe in the 20th century. As a sport, it takes the best waves of the ocean to make it happen, a vicinity that cannot just validate the skills of the accomplished surfers but will also indulge the novice ones.

Below are the lists of finest surfing destinations you can check on:

1. Tofino, British Columbia, Canada

The all-day-long surfing will not stress you because of the breathtaking scenery it has. It is during the winter months when the biggest waves come. For beginners, it is suggested to undergo surfing during the summer season for warmer temperatures and more easygoing waves. You can grab your wetsuit, board, and lesson at the nearest Tofino Surf School.

2. Siargao, Island, Surigao Del Norte Philippines

Located at Surigao del Norte, Siargao is known for its diurnal tide with tidal curves that surfers all around the world come to experience. Considered as the best surfing destination in the Philippines and one of the best in the world, Siargao also has a lot to offer aside from its big waves and surf attractions.

3. Superbank, Gold Coast, Australia

Considered to be a "surfer's paradise," Gold Coast is known for its 70 km of beaches and four epic point breaks, including the Superbank, which is considered one of the world's finest breaks. Gold Coast has been known for luring and welcoming surfers for decades, not only for the quality of its waves but also for the large expansive area that can accommodate all surfers.

4. Pipeline, Oahu, Hawaii

It is one of the best places to go on surfing in the United States, Oahu is a popular surfing destination and tops the list of every seasoned professional as a great surfing spot where the big daddy of all waves can be experienced. The waves grow for about six meters of a shallow base of razor-blade table reef. If you dare to chase this flawless tube, you will encounter one of nature's fantastic formations.

5. Bundoran Beach, County Donegal, Ireland

The cold may hinder a surfer who is just starting, but not the competent ones. For die-hard fanatics, the shimmering green waters with their rolling waves that are shaped by bouncing off of the headlands and flat rock reefs are enough to draw them into Bundoran. Just a few hours away from Dublin, this is one of the world's best surfing spots in Europe.

6. Punta Mita, Nayarit, Mexico

The sandy bottom, mellow waves, and warm water encourage surfing schools to be established here, especially for aspiring surfers. As a less crowded place on the North Coast, it has also become a fun place to shop and dine aside from surfing.

7. Sagres, Algarve, Portugal

Through Algarve Surf School, it will fetch you from your hotel and take you to your surfing lesson. Algarve region is known not just in surfing but for its towering cliffs, sandy islands bustling beach bars that are accessible to other adventures. 

8. Surfer's Point - Barbados

Sheltered surfing spots on the southern coast of Barbados permit tourists on surfing lessons in a tropical island with turquoise water with no wetsuit needed. The laid-back waves of the place sustain surfing all year round.

Wherever your surfboards take you, just ride the tide and make waves you will never forget for the rest of your life. Happy and safe surfing!
