Rosy Hodge has been travelling to the most idyllic surfing spots on earth for more than a decade, first as a competing professional surfer on the World Championship Tour and more recently, as a broadcaster on the WSL’s Championship Tour. So she knows a thing or two about awesome surf spots.
Surfing remains her main crush, and the 29-year-old who hails from East London in South Africa reckons she surfs more now than ever before, here, in her own words, are her ultimate surf spots in the world:
- Supertubes, Jeffreys Bay, South Africa
- Snapper Rock, Australia
- Tavarua Island, Fiji
- Honolua Bay, Hawaii
- Queensbury Bay, South Africa
Supertubes, Jeffreys Bay, South Africa
I love everything about this place and wave. Even the cold adds to the mystic feel of the line-up. It’s raw, beautiful and iconic. Those groomed lines that bend into the point always make my heart happy.
Snapper Rock, Australia
Snapper must be the most crowded surf spot on the planet, but when you get a good one it’s incredible. The water temperature and shape of the wave make it just so inviting.
Tavarua Island, Fiji
There is something special about staying on this tiny island. I love surfing ‘Restaurants’ or ‘Cloudbreak’ of course but that place is so special even riding a soft top at Kiddie Land or Namotu Lefts is heavenly.
Honolua Bay, Hawaii
You come into the parking track at ‘The bay’ and have the poor man’s helicopter view of the swell running down the point. That wave is perfect. Sure, another densely populated lineup, but the wave is dreamy.
Queensbury Bay, South Africa
It’s my home break and even after all these years it’s my absolute favourite place in the world.
