Unfortunately we all can’t be beach bums as we have life to deal with which is where surfing podcasts come in to keep fellow surfers thinking of the beach. The following are a brief list of excellent podcasts for listening when unavailable to keep the “eye on the tide” but available to stay up to date when it comes to surfing. Ranging from the largest waves to back-flips here’s a few of the best podcasts for surfing information from novice or a professional.
