Maps to Nowhere Episode 3

27 April 2023

Patience is a virtue. Maybe you've heard that one before, but when it comes to getting the waves of your life, it's not just a cliché. Diehard surf traveler/journalist Matt Rode has spent years exploring and mapping the remote corners of the surfing world. This time, he invited fellow surfers Soli Bailey, Anne Dos Santos and Ian Crane to explore a beautiful, menacing right reef slab, with a lot more going on than it first appears. Seventy-two hours and four flights later, they'd beaten the swell into town...and the wait began. Until the last two days of the trip, when their patience paid off in the biggest and most glorious Maps challenge so far.

*Note: “Maps to Nowhere” is a series about how far surfers will go to ride perfect, empty waves. The spots you'll see in the series are not new discoveries, but they are perfect, empty, and remain undisclosed, because our belief is that the journey is at least half the fun — and sometimes, over half the travel time. We thank the many local community members who've helped make our adventures a success.

***NEXT! Ep 4, “Where The Road Ends,” with Jordy Smith and Soli Bailey, premieres May 18th AEST.
