surfEXPLORE is an international travel collective led by John Callahan, Sam Bleakley, Erwan Simon, Emiliano Cataldi and Phil Goodrich (with regular guests such as Holly Beck, Randy Rarick, Zed Layson, Icah Wilmot, Tristan Jenkin and Baybay Niu). We specialise in researching, performing and producing groundbreaking exploration projects to cultural tourism frontiers, creating the highest level of surf travel photography, writing and film. The team speaks English, French, Italian and Spanish, and we maintain contributor relationships with more than fifty surf and travel publications worldwide in English, Español, Français, Italiano, Deutsch, Português, Japanese, Chinese, Russian and Bahasa Indonesian, ensuring worldwide awareness and multiple international publication of each surfEXPLORE expedition.

With the enduring appeal of surfing, the number of surfers worldwide has been growing each year (currently 23 million). surfEXPLORE aims to encourage others to travel to new areas by researching and highlighting cultural tourism frontiers and the wealth of unsurfed waves around the world. We encourage a philosophy of discovery, tolerance and positive change. To ensure ethical and sustainable travel, we work closely with Falmouth University in the UK and with organisations such as Adventurers and Scientists for Conservation and the Marine Environmental Research Institute.
