WE SENT OUR PHOTOGRAPHER TO THE EAST COAST OF TAS TO CHECK OUT THE SURF CULTURE AND DISCOVERED HIDDEN BEACHES, BEAUTIFUL CAFES, AND THE INFLUENCE OF A FEW PRO SURFERS.
If you haven't planned a trip yet, it's time to.
Nestled in the north-east of Tassie is a small town called Scamander. It's not hard to miss. The signs literally say 'Famous Surf Beach' and the road from Bicheno to Scamander is nick-named the surf coast. Explore this amazing coastline, and grab a coffee at Swims, a cafe built from a container (pictured below).
It's also home to a few pro-surfers like Dion Agius. Agius is not only an amazing surfer, but a serial entrepreneur, starting brands like Epokhe & Standard Procedure, along with a bunch of collaborations under his belt. You can shop his products both online and in store at Natural Necessity.
