The best surf destination you’ve never heard of

This is a post I’ve been meaning to write for some time. I want to show off the place where I grew up, which as it turns out, is one of the best little-known surf spots ever! It’s a tiny island (5km x 8km) in between Australia and New Zealand but completely out in the middle of the Tasman sea.

With uncrowded waves, clean blue water and no recorded shark attacks, what’s not to like? Norfolk Island got some love on Swellnet (Australia’s biggest surf portal) over Christmas with a photo gallery of empty tubes, and the internet was frothing over the quality of what Norfolk has to offer.

Without further ado I present for your viewing pleasure the waves of Norfolk Island. The photos below are from two talented local photographers – my brother Matt Fieldes (http://www.facebook.com/MattFieldesPhotography) and Zach Sanders (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Stuck-On-A-Rock/256010924468702?fref=ts) if you want to see more wave action check out their Facebook Pages.
