When it comes to exploring incredible surf spots, the world is your oyster. From tranquil nights listening to the crashing waves, to days spent on the surf, following the tide is a brilliant way to enjoy the great outdoors.
As a professional surfer, Jayco Vanbassador Imogen Caldwell has experienced epic waves in destinations across Australia and the world. We’ve asked her to share her favourite surf spots in her own backyard and across the globe.
Red Bluff, WA
Located 10 hours from Perth, on the Southern Tip of the Ningaloo Marine Park, Red Bluff aka ‘The Bluff’ is where Imogen first learnt to surf. Featuring pristine beaches and some of the best waves in Australia, Imogen knows this location like the back of her hand and loves making memories with family and close friends when surfing here.
Red Bluff is also a part of Quobba Station – a family operated 187,000 acre pastoral station. It is the home to incredible marine, bird and wildlife making this a particularly special spot and one of Imogen’s favourite camping spots in Western Australia
Gnaraloo Tombstones, WA
A phenomenal destination that is adjacent with the Ningaloo Marine Park, Gnaraloo is a working pastoral station based in the Gnaraloo Bay. Imogen said the Tombstones is one break that really pushes her out of her comfort zone – describing it as scary and challenging, yet one of the most rewarding waves on earth.
This one is a must-see for the more experienced surfers out there and makes a great caravanning spot.

The Banzai Pipeline is a surf break located in Pupukea, Hawaii. Imogen’s favourite part? Its incredible wave – a feature that the pipeline is known for. This beautiful tropical setting is also the home of the Pipeline Masters, a surf contest attended by surfers from all over the world.
Kandui Mentawai, Indonesia
Situated in an Indonesian Island called Karangmajat, Mentawai is known as one of the best surfing destinations in the world. The warm crystal-clear water is one of Imogen’s most-loved international surf spots. She said it’s hard to not find a perfect wave here.
While this isn’t your typical surfing spot, Imogen loves the new URBNSurf Wave Pool in Melbourne. For those just starting out or if you’re wanting to brush up on some of your skills, Imogen also mentioned the URBN Surf Wave Pool in Melbourne. Based in Tullamarine, it is great for everyone – from beginners to experts.
