SURFING Magazine Google Earth Reader Challenge

Here’s how it works: Download (if you haven’t already) the GoogleEarth satellite imaging program from and use it to scour the Earth’s remote coastlines for potential wave set-ups from the comfort of your own home. When you find a good one, make a jpg. “frame grab” or a hard copy print out of the set-up, with the coordinates provided by Google Earth on the page, and send it to:

We’ll choose the set-up with the most potential as a NEW DISCOVERY and, if it’s yours, we’ll not only set you up with a killer prize pack of shorts/sandals/tide watches/backpack courtesy of Quiksilver Travel, but we’ll also take you (along with a few top pros and one of our veteran photographers) there to surf place. Hell, we’ll even let you name the break if it’s going off.
Sound like a dream come true? You bet it does. So log on and start searching. Happy hunting.

RULES: Entries must be received by 08/27/06 and must contain the GoogleEarth satellite image along with relevant coordinates. Winner must be 18 or older, or get written permission from their parent or guardian to be able to go on the trip. SURFING retains the right to seek out any break brought to our attention without permission from the sender (hey, it’s a free country, right?), but don’t worry, we wouldn’t do that to you.
