Surf travel tips, and everything surf-related that could be interesting for you.


I started this page to share my adventures from around the world with you.

Surf Magazines were an essential part during the beginning of my life as a surfer. I was living far away from the ocean. Being carried off to some exotic places by pictures of beautiful waves and the travel tales that came with them, didn’t only make me want to go and surf, but at the same time reminded me that there is so much out there waiting for us.

I always felt the urge to travel and see the world. But sometimes you can’t! Sometimes you stuck in a job, in a phase of your life when you can’t just go.

I was on a long surf travel and had time to learn something new. So I started thefreesurfer.com. 

As I travel with my camera, sharing my desire for the unknown, for waves and foreign cultures became a part of my trips. 

I hope I can make you go out there and chase after your own dreams! Big or small… and along the way, you might find some useful info here.



If you want to know who I am, and how I think, read the article on theInertia. It gives you a pretty good idea. And follow me on Facebook and Instagram to be up to date with my latest trips and page updates.

    Love this concept! So inspirational that you figured out way to continue your surf travels for over 7 years. I’m working on it as I like to keep surfing … and try many other things to check off on my bucket list. Cheers!

    I have recently started a blog, the information you offer on this website has helped me greatly. Thanks for all of your time & work. “The more sand that has escaped from the hourglass of our life, the clearer we should see through it.” by Jean Paul.

    Once I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new feedback are added- checkbox and now each time a remark is added I get four emails with the same comment. Is there any manner you may remove me from that service? Thanks!

      Hey Patritsche,
      i haven’t heard from you in…how long? 6 years? 7 years! We should find some time and go surf together again. Maybe later this year in Landoland!

        I don’t know if I will get a visa for this beautiful Landoland. But maybe somewhere close.
        Any news from Ira or somebody else ?

    Hey, Pascal! I’ve just seen your video application for Jauntaroo and figured I’d take a look at your site. I’m currently living in Switzerland and, yes, there definitely aren’t many beaches here! haha

    Hallo Pascal,

    ich habe eben ein Interview von dir gelesen bzgl. den Mentawais.. War sehr interessant.. Ich selber war 2014 und 2015 schon auf nyang nyang(beng beng nipussi und co…) und kann deine Erfahrungen nur bestätigen.. Ich hatte einsame perfekte Wellen aber auch total überlaufene Tage.. Naja ich will 2019 wieder nach Indo und eigentlich wollt ich auf die Mentawais… Nur bin ich mir nicht mehr sicher ob sie das von 2015 noch sind.. Dein Satz dass es in Info kilometerweit Küste gibt hat mich nochmal zum nachdenken gebracht. Ich bin ein Durchschnittlicher Surfer der jetzt nicht die fettesten Wellen surft aber auf den Mentawais an den normalen Spot ohne Probleme zurecht gekommen ist. Hast du vielleicht ein Tipp wo man im April in Indo sonst noch hin kann wo es geile Wellen hat und vielleicht nicht so viel Leute weil es dort halt keine turbo barrels hat.. Ich dank dir für deine Antwort.. Gruss aus Lanzarote Matthias

    In my opinion this is the best surfblog and -report! Browsing your page is not only very informative and inspiring but also good fun! Very nice style of writing and honest surf reports. I hope you keep on sharing your travel experiences.

    Holà Passi,
    wir sind gerade wieder Mal auf Teneriffa und ich bin durch Zufall auf deiner Seite gelandet – super gemacht.
    Bei allem, was du schreibst kann ich Dir zu absolut 100% zustimmen – irre wie sich das deckt.
    Hast du noch Kontakt zu den Landoland-Häftlingen?
    Hasta luego,
