Why surfEXPLORE?

We are global:
surfEXPLORE presents an unparalleled opportunity for media exposure across multiple platforms including print, digital and social media.We maintain contributor relationships with more than 50 surf and travel publications and websites worldwide and submit editorial in English, Espafiol, Francais, Italiano, Deutsch, Portugués, Japanese, Chinese, Russian and Bahasa Indonesian and have access to over 3M followers through our social media network.

We are experienced:
Our team has researched, produced and photographed projects to find new waves in more than 40 locations and have already completed 30 successful surfEXPLORE projects including Algeria, Western Sahara, Liberia, Ghana, Angola, Japan, China and Haiti.

We understand what it takes to deliver our projects and are experienced in all aspects of travel exploration including dealing with local politics, obtaining visas and permits and the intricacies of local customs and cultures.

Between us we have published over 5000 pages of editorial material, 100+ international cover images, 6 authored and illustrated books and created 4surf travel documentaries in Haiti,Jamaica, Barbados and Liberia.

We are sustainable:
when researching new locations, we give priority to places that have a strong cultural, historical or social context, places whose appeal goes beyond the perfect wave. we feel it is essential to give back to the communities we visit and whenever possible, expose the local issues in our stories.

We participate in projects via local NGO’s or other recognised organisations. For example, in Haiti we joined a project to plant mango trees along hillsides previously stripped for charcoal. Sustaining charcoal use by replacing tree for tree is essential in reducing erosion and subsequent damage riskto coral in the sea nearby.

For future explorations, we are working with Adventurers and Scientists for Conservation to connect with researchers requiring data collection and samples for projects in each of our locations and will partner with organisations such as the Marine Environmental Research Institute (MERI) to assist on studies looking at the extent of marine microplastic contamination in our oceans and the health of our marine habitats.
