Tell us what you think, tell us what you want. Tell us who you are, where you surf. Let us know what we are doing wrong, and what we are doing right. Pitch us ideas for stories, send us photos, tell us what you’re wearing. We want to know who you are and what makes you tick. And what you’re wearing.

Submission Details

Here at Surfing Life we love stealing your ideas. Just kidding! But seriously, pitch us an idea, send us an original story, fill our inbox with photos. Anything, everything, we want to hear it all!

N.B. We fluctuate between being extremely busy and just being really, quite, busy. While we will endeavour to respond to everything sent to us, only the submissions that really float our boat are guaranteed a response. The onus is on you to hit us with your best gear, hombre.

Surfing Life is not just a bloody great surf mag, it’s a fully-fledged media engine churning out content across six media channels (print, social, online, e-newsletters and events).

In print we publish five special issues based on the five central pillars of the surfing experience: Surfers, Surfboards, Waves, Travel and Technique. Each issue is totally dedicated to that subject alone, providing our readers the substance, depth and authority that most magazines lack today. It’s not just a strategy, it’s an entirely new publishing paradigm that makes print relevant and influential in a media landscape dominated by digital noise, and provides a clear point of difference between us and our competitors.

In digital we deliver our news via social channels because that’s the way the world is going, but it kinda leaves online without purpose, so for us our website is home to expert opinion on the big news stories, practical tips on how to improve your surfing life, and more timeless content such as “The Surfing Life Of…” series.

But at the end of the day we love everything to do with surf, and we’re like you, so if you think something’s good, then there’s a really good chance that we do too.

Whatch’you waitin’ for? Submit it fool! Email your submissions to us with all your relevant details in the form of a standard .doc or .rtf attachment to:
