Surfing involves lots of skill and an excellent physical condition. It looks real cool and the thing to do when you go to the beach, but  Big Wave Surfing, for most of us, is beyond our wildest dreams. Not every surfing beach can offer you big waves. Great news for all beginners out there. And even though many people travel the world looking for the best and biggest waves ever, some of the most famous and interesting places for big wave surfing are right here in the U.S. Plus, surfing and camping will always be best buddies. 

Here are our top 3 surfing spots in the U.S. to get you inspired, now that Spring is here. So plan an awesome trip to the warmer coastal waters and enjoy the waves.
Surfs up! 


Pipeline, Hawaii

Pipeline is located on the Island of Oahu in Hawaii. Pipeline is a world famous reef break, known as one of the heaviest waves in the world with more than 20 feet in height. It is also where modern surf was born. Pipeline is considered the best reef break in the planet and definitely not for beginners. You really need to have advanced surfing skills and experience on the reef.

Jaws, Hawaii

The Island of Maui is the second-largest of the Hawaiian Islands and Jaws has one of the most iconic big waves in the world, also produced by a reef break. It has both right and left waves with big and very powerful barrels that can reach up to 89 feet in Winter.

Maverick’s, California

Maverick’s waves are surfed only by very talented, brave, big wave surfers. Also one of the most famous waves in the planet, located in Northern California. This gigantic, iconic wave can reach heights of 82 feet and the only way to reach the spot is by Jet Ski or Boat.
