Surfing, A Family Business In Australia

It is rare to find another activity that matches the popularity of surfing along Australia coastlines. Surf schools and surf shops are all over the place. We are able to spot surfboards on the roof of one car out of three we pass on the road. We bump into a lot of people walking barefoot and carrying their surf gear (even in the street of Brisbane). Boys, girls, young, old, all are constantly looking for the best surfing spots. They all sound like an encyclopedia of surfing as well when you interact with them. It is also very common to find entire families of surfers on Australia's beaches (photo). God, do they all live in houses decorated with surfing posters? Something needs to be clarified here: we have used the word "surf" and its derivative 11 times so far in this article (and soon 12 and 13). No, we are not paid to use it. One thing is sure though, more than just a sport, surf culture is an art and a way of life in Australia. It is not surprising that Rip Curl, Billabong and Quiksilver, three of the biggest brands in the surfwear industry, are Australian companies.
