LIST: These exhilarating surfing resorts are celebrity-approved

By Hannah Mallorca Published May 14, 2022 12:17 pm

Grab your surfboard, take a deep breath, and get ready to ride the waves—it’s surfing season.

Summer is more than just sunbathing at the beach, going hiking, or lounging around in your comfiest pajamas. Why not make the most out of the season by surfing?

To outsiders, surfing looks intimidating since it’s about balancing yourself on the surfboard before taking the plunge. Even if you’ll probably get wiped out, it gives a rush that will give you the much-needed boost to continue with your day-to-day life.

If you’re planning to go surfing, these celebrity-approved resorts should be added to your next travel bucket list. Trust us, they’re worth the splurge.
