Surfboating is the extreme side of coastal rowing. Launching from the beach, through the waves, in the chop offshore, back in at high speed riding the face of a curling breaker… Its a rush of energy to power out through the waves and a soaring flight to return.
All that being said, the surf boat is also ideal for easy rows along the scenic South Coast. It is a great way to learn sliding seat rowing in a team boat. Its also an amazing new experience for flat-water rowers to step into a big boat and feel the oar in the wide open sea!
Dharma Voyage owns one of the few Australian Surf Boats that are in the U.S.A. This is a rugged boat waiting to play in waves and take some adventurous open-water rows.
