Barry Teeling Hey, I’m Barry and I only learned to surf when I was 30 years old in Sydney. It’s never too late to learn! I’m 41 now and would consider myself an advanced long boarder able to side step, hang 5 but struggling to hang 10 as yet!! Surfing has brought me all over the world and one of my favourite spots is the Maldives where the waves are so predictable which l love. My absolute favourite is the Mentawai where I got some of my biggest waves last year at A-Frames. I’m living in Cornwall now and I lived in Australia from 2004 to 2012, then Hossegor, France from 2012 to 2015. If you want to know anything about boat trips I’m your guy! ;o)


Suzi Allen Hi, I’m Suzi and I am a director of The Perfect Wave Europe. After having surfed, worked & travelled around the world for the past 20 years, I’ve found the perfect job! I spent my gap year learning to surf in Hossegor, then went back to uni to study French, Spanish, Portuguese and German.  I spent my third year in Uni studying and surfing in Mexico, a few months in Costa Rica followed by 6 months studying in Brazil. My adventures really got started when I graduated and got a job in Galicia. In 2001, I lived in Australia for 18 months, followed by a few years in Bali. Sailed across the South Pacific through the Panama Canal to Tahiti in a 12m sailboat, then back to reality in Europe where I settled back down in Hossegor. Want advice about where to surf in the world? You’ve come to the right place!

Victoria Yeo  Hi, I’m the Senior Travel Consultant with 16 years of experience under my belt. I’ve been working in the travel industry organising not only round the world backpacking trips but also luxury bespoke holidays. I do love a challenge and to put my travel knowledge to the test! Over the years I‘ve had the opportunity to travel the world from California to Morocco to Portugal and even China with my surf coach boyfriend and mini ‘Wahine’ daughter. Whatever your request, I can use my skill and passion for travel to get you on your ultimate surf adventure. Did I mention I’m the expert at organising Surf Honeymoons? I’ve been learning to surf for a while now, I have the bug and you can find me on the Cornish beaches trying to catch my first wave.

Lars Bornhöft Aloha! I‘m Lars, but my friends call me Larsenhausen. I live with my family in the Canaries and we’ve always been a true surf travelling family. Now my daughter is in school so we only get to travel once or twice a year for a couple of weeks at a time.The rest of the year I love organising trips for surfers of all levels and selling the dream, which I used to live myself...
One of the best feelings is to enjoy a great session with friends in the water and also get amazing feedback from stoked surf travellers returning from a trip of a lifetime.

Some of our Clients' testimonials:

  • Hey Gina!!
    Hey I really appreciate all the stuff you guys at Perfect Wave did for us n getting us back form the Mentawais after the tsunami. I think we forgot what you guys were doing behind the scenes for us working late, calling our fams and embassys as well as taking care of hotels, accom, transport, etc etc. We would have been proper F%&ked if yas werent there for us.
    Thanks heaps!!!!!

  • Hi Rhonda
    Ive been meaning to thank you for the brilliant job you did organising all our flights & connections and accommodating the last minute changes. We will wax lyrical to all about the quality of your work.
    Warm regards

  • When 10 intrepid surfers, who are getting close to qualifying for their seniors cards, thought it was time to rejuvenate the soul and hit the waves the common view was to hit the Mentawis. In the quest to stay young, but being realistic enough to acknowledge that the number of cutbacks done per trip equate to what we most kids are doing on a single wave, we chose the MV Midas as our craft of choice to chase these waves. Why? Boat speed and comfort – it was fast enough to explore numerous breaks when the wind, tide and the crowds became a factor and comfortable enough to savour the joy of a great days surf.

    Throw in the bonus that the crew are sensational, food is great, the Bintang is always icy cold, the Skipper knows where the best waves are and that everyone has a focus of making it the best trip possible then you cannot fail to have the trip of a lifetime. The MV Midas did that and more and we have already booked again for the next 2 years as we challenge the theory that it only gets better next time around.

    Our first trip produced great waves with great friends and watching some of the footage again the other day I couldn’t help but notice the smiles all the boys had on their faces – mission accomplished as we all had the grins we had as kids, the stories get better and the tube ride is still achievable. Life without the thrill of surfing pristine, challenging and perfect waves just can’t be contemplated so if you feel the need for rejuvenation then I recommend you organise your own trip of a lifetime on the MV Midas and let the Perfect Wave Team, especially Rhonda, plan it for you. You won’t be disappointed.

  • Hi Rhonda, I just wanted to send a quick e-mail to say a big thank you for all your help in organising my recent honeymoon. Your help and input was much appreciated and no doubt had a big influence on us having an absolutely amazing time. The Maldives....amazing place!!!

    Everything went really well, from the pick-ups and transfers through to the nice little swell running while we were at Hudhuran Fushi. We were more than happy at Kandooma, but Hudhuran Fushi really blew us away. It is such a beautiful place and the overwater villas were amazing. Truly a memorable experience.

    Thank you once again. I will definitely be in touch to arrange the next trip through you, though the next one will likely be a boys trip. Open to suggestions...

  • The Perfect Wave were fantastic in organising a trouble-free holiday; they take all the hard work out of organisation. Would highly recommend them. I would say where i went but then i would have to kill you.



    It was a pleasure dealing with The Perfect Wave. Our consultant was very understanding when we where searching of the right location. As it turnout he came up with the right surfing experience for my son and I (young charger and old cruiser). Looking forward to the next surfing adventure.

  • The Perfect Wave team were great. We were even able to contact our consultant during her holiday. Now that's service!

  • I had a very good time for someone travelling to Bali and Sumbawa for the first time. Accomodation was great and food was really great too. Indonesia is really a surfing heaven, and is easy going in most parts too. I would be keen to go back as its so cheap over there! The Perfect Wave had everything organised for me so all transfers were taken care of, all I had to do was work on surfing better!

  • The booking and organising of the trip by the Perfect Wave team, in particular Rhonda, was excellent. The customer service was great, with nothing being a problem, and all contingencies covered eg. extra baggage allowance for boards etc. This efficient organisation led to a trouble free trip, with all flights, transfers, etc going smmothly.

    All together, this enabled us to have a great surfing trip and holiday. I highly recommend The Perfect Wave travel team!!

  • Hi Rhonda

    I just wanted to write a quick note to let you know how impressed I was by the service provided by Gina. She went way out of her way to help us book our trip, swapping/reshuffling flights/schedules many times to try work out the best trip for us, to enable us to stay at Novotel (which was hard as they are mostly closed for renovations), Heaven on the Planet as well as 3 nights in Bali. She was so patient with us not being flexible at all with dates, as we only had that 2 week window we could take leave on.

    She saved us flying to Bali each way, by suggesting we fly direct from Lombok on Garuda, something I would never have thought of, this also saved us money on flights compared to going with Virgin.

    She was always cheerful when I spoke to her, even though many times I rung her with difficult things ie changes to schedules etc. My husband was also very impressed when he spoke to her and she explained how the surf guides worked, where the waves were, etc., she had a lot of knowledge on all of this.

    I guess this is why we always keep coming back to The Perfect Wave. We went once with World Surfaris, but found you guys provide a far better service than them, hence we have booked many trips with you.

    We look forward to booking many more trips with The Perfect Wave/Gina as you don't find service like that often these days!

    Regards, Belinda
  • Marie and TPW listened to our requirements and sent us to the perfect destination. Even while we were away Marie gave us excellent service extending our trip. It was hassle and stress free which make for a better holiday.

  • I was very pleased with the service offered by Jamie and his staff and in particular the way that they were able to keep accomodating the many changes i made to the itinerary due to my girlfriend's work comitments.

  • My first overseas trip & it was more than I bargained for. Perfect food, Perfect service & Perfect waves. I will be travelling overseas again & I don't think I need to look any further than The Perfect Wave; thanks alot guys it was as I said before PERFECT. Everything from start to finish was totally professional & could not say a bad word about any aspect. Thank you!

  • I loved dealing with The Perfect Wave. The whole process was seamless, the advice on the package was perfect & our experience with The Perfect Wave was great, can't wait to book our next destination.

  • We have booked two family surf holidays and strongly recommend The Perfect Wave for booking any holiday. The staff is extremely helpful and knowledgeable about all aspects of travel & understand travellers needs and can recommend a holiday taylor made for anyone's needs. The staff is very friendly and have a personal rapore with people even though they have not met face to face usually only through email & phone contact. Thank you for a great service.

  • I've never travelled overseas on my own before and Perfect Wave were the best option for me. They organised everything for me with the best accommodation and I had the best trip I could have ever asked for!

  • Thanks Perfect Wave for organising an awesome trip. A perfect travel agent should have you excited for your holiday and not stressing on travel arrangements and this is exactly how it turned out. My only stress was which perfect wave to take off on!

  • My whole experience with Jamie and the Perfect Wave travel group was as smooth as you could ask for, the transfers, the accomodation and the surf guide was top notch. I'll be contacting Jamie as soon as I think about my next holiday.

  • Made life very easy!! Will travel again with The Perfect Wave!!

  • Hi Rhonda, just wanted to say a big thank you for all your help in organising my trip I had a fantastic time and will definitely be recommending you guys in the future you made my trip hassle free.

  • The Perfect Wave has done it again for us; another perfect surf holiday!!

  • As this was my first time on a boat trip and in the Mentawais, I'm already organising my next trip in Christmas with the Perfect wave and were so happy with the service, advice and professionalism of the Perfect Wave team. I recommend it to anyone, especially the younger surfers to book with the team. Go for it, you wont regret it!!!

  • We have had a bad experience previously with a surf holiday company so we were a little hesitant to use The Perfect Wave, however much to our delight they could not have been more friendly and efficient.

  • This is my third big surf trip with The Perfect Wave. I scored perfect weather and good waves on each trip. Good to book with someone who knows what you are after.

  • Very informative, very good customer service, changed airfares 2x with no extra costs, totally recommend it, good info provided my consultant went out of her way to find me another surfer going on the trip and introduced me to him so we both felt we had someone familiar.

  • Thanks Marie for organising our dream holiday! You made everything happen for us and our holiday was absolutely perfect! We had perfect weather & for the most part, great surf! We would not hesitate to book again through The Perfect Wave.

  • From the first time I contacted Jamie about this trip he went out of his way to make it the best trip I could have as I was travelling by myself. He even reduced the cost of the trip while not reducing the length or quality of the trip. Therefore resulting in more time in the surf.

  • I found The Perfect Wave made organizing our trip extremely easy and effortless which was important as we had such a small window of opportunity and left things to the last moment to organize - excellent service all round.

  • Hello Claire, Thank you for your help. The family is really looking forward to it, Just to give you and The Perfect Wave some initial feedback.

    Your communication, and attention to detail has been fantastic and the level of service has far exceeded what would be provided by a high street travel agent. (Resort maps, menus, floor plans etc.)
    I had three quotations (including yourselves) for this trip, whilst you weren’t the cheapest, I certainly feel comfortable that I have made the correct decision based on your experience.
