Originally better known as a fishing spot than a surf spot, Snapper is now probably the most crowded wave in all of Australia. Thanks to a project that began back in 1995 clearing sand from the entrance to the Tweed River, it’s now possible to ride a wave from Snapper all the way down to Kirra … rare, but possible! Probably one of the reasons you’ll find the likes of Parko and Mick Fanning at this spot, when they’re not travelling the globe with the ASP World Tour.
Here’s our take on the wave that helps to kick off the ASP season every year at the Quiksliver Pro:
Snapper Rocks: the start point of the longest right-hand barrel machine on earth. The Snapper section gets more swell than Kirra, often delivering a hard-breaking take-off, leading to a makeable tube section and race-track. Can link up across Rainbow and Greenmount for record breaking shack time. Current is mad so get a wave quick and walk back up the beach. Advanced. Crowds … Ah Yeah!!

Seeing as we’re a UK based company we thought we should focus on a UK surf spot for our very first “Spot of the Week”. So here’s a surf guide to Fistral Beach for you, probably the UK’s best known spot:
“Signs all through the town of Newquay, huge car park on the beach.
The most famous surfing beach in England. Whilst reef breaks and some coves may get better waves, the probability of getting good waves on any given day of the year is higher here than just about anywhere.
South Fistral works through all tides, with good lefts and some rights. It’s a bit more protected on bigger days with a southwest wind. North Fistral is often bigger, and gets hollow at low tide, especially off the rocks at the top end, where there’s usually one of the best left and right peaks. Little Fistral, right around the corner, and almost swallowed up at high tide, can have great shape too on low to mid. Autumn swells from NW-W are best but it is consistent all year round. 1-8ft intermediate+. Crowds in the summer and plenty of room in the winter.
The Cribber, out the back of Towan Head off Cribber Rock, is a fickle off-shore reef for hell-men, although it rarely breaks in a ride-able way. It needs a very big groundswell in the 8-12ft range to show, and perfect south-east offshore breeze to hold shape. In these conditions it’ll hold any size.”
