8 Podcasts to Get You Ready for Summer
On a road trip, headed out on your next surf trip? Or maybe just in the gym or in your car for your work commute, dreaming of the next time you can get out on the water? Whatever the reason surfing’s on your mind, tune in to one of these eight surfing podcasts to learn, laugh or just enjoy some conversations from some of your favorite surfing personalities.
Get to know surfers from all over the globe, both known and unknown personalities. You’ll hear their stories as surfer Imi Barneaud leads the intimate interviews, and see just how much surfing brings together a community of very different people who otherwise might never have met. New podcast episodes come out biweekly, two times per month.
The name might make you chuckle, but that’s just what you can expect from this podcast led by Australian surfing journalists, Adam Vaughan Blakey and Jed Smith. The whole podcast is just surfing and fun humor, with lots of laughs and what they call “cutting fucking sick.” We’re sold!
If you want a good mix of everything surfing, then you’ll want to listen to a few episodes of Surf Splendor, hosted by David Scales. And this one is a great pick if you need a lot of episodes to listen to (like for that road trip to your favorite surf spot). There are more than 100 to choose from and the content ranges from surfing news to interviews with surfers, and there’s even a new episode every day — so there’s always something new!
If you prefer listening to a podcast that’s going to somehow elevate your surfing game, rather than just tell you more about the surfing industry or letting you into the minds of pro surfers, then tune in to Surf Mastery. This podcast is all about helping you up your surfing skills. Surf industry pros discuss new ideas and techniques for improvement. Similar to Surf Splendor, Surf Mastery also put out a large amount of content, for a new episode nearly every single day.

Are you a female surfer and feeling a little bit left out in this very much male-dominated sport? Then definitely catch up on this podcast.

Laura Day hosts, for a funny, good-time podcast that’ll brighten your day.
