anyone consider, plan and/or do a mini SUP Surf trip around the world? about 4-5 months and somewhat budget trip.

i am thinking to hit australia, new zealand, indonesia, south africa, other africa?, portugal, for sure looking for suggestions as this would my chance to hit out of the way off the beaten path places!

planning to list places, the best time of year for each and then find a path that makes sense.

talk to me!

Sounds like a plan....

Each region will have it's best swell window.
Here is the WSL event schedule, which is one indicator of good seasons to surf event areas.

2018 World Surf League (WSL) Men's Championship Tour:
Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast, Australia - March 11 - 22, 2018
Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach, Australia - March 28 - April 8, 2018
Margaret River Pro, Australia - April 11 - 22, 2018
Oi Rio Pro, Brazil - May 10 - 19, 2018
Bali Pro, Indonesia - May 27 - June 9, 2018
Corona Open J-Bay, South Africa - July 2 - 13, 2018
Tahiti Pro Teahupo'o, Tahiti - August 10 - 21, 2018
Surf Ranch Lemoore, California/USA. September 5 - 9, 2018
Quiksilver Pro France, France - October 3 - 14, 2018
MEO Rip Curl Pro Portugal, Portugal - October 16 - 27, 2018
Billabong Pipe Masters, Hawaii/USA - December 8 - 20, 2018

Of course, they are looking for big, serious swell, so maybe a bit later than the event windows will offer good surf in those areas.

OR:
Plenty to explore out there if you leave the regular tropical path.

Bring a wetsuit and go cold!
Less crowds, great waves

Nova Scotia & Newfoundland Sept - October
Alaska
Ireland

If you come to New England, USA... Sept - November, I'll steer you to some great areas.
Weather is good Sept & Oct, with good swells
Water is not too bad, but you'll need a wetsuit.

Paddle on,

Great quest. Check out Netflix " Under an Arctic Sky". One of the most beautiful surf travel documentaries I have watched. Very cool! It will get you stoked for travel for sure. These guys are inspirational.

cheers

Hi Creek,I'm moving from Australia to the states for a year and may be out New England way around Sept - November.
So might take you up on some local knowledge if I end up there
