Indie rockers Caravana Sun share 5 of their favourite Australian surf breaks.
Last month, raucous indie surf rockers Caravãna Sun released a new single, 'Beauty And The Pain', which was written to celebrate the good and the bad times within a relationship.
"['Beauty And The Pain' is about] knowing that in the sh*t times, there's always a splitting ray of beauty, like the fierce glow of your angry lover. It's the cheeky smile you can't help but let out. It's the knowing that where there's pain, there's beauty," Caravãna Sun's Ant Beard says.
At the tail-end of a national tour, and with a massive six-week European and UK tour that commences next month, Caravana Sun indulge in their other 'love' with their favourite Oz surf breaks to visit while on tour.
"Our touring schedule over the years has been highly dependent on the surf locations and whether we'd have time to get in the ocean between soundcheck and gig," the band says.
"At this point in our career, we've realised that we and our fans like music that moves both inside and out. Whether that's full power, hip thrusting or held suspense between moments of bliss, we're always on the search to break the barrier between artist and audience."
1. Gracetown, WA
Easily one of the most scary spots for sharks. Super thick, west-coast slabs.
2. Angourie, NSW
Had some cracker mornings watching the sunrise and paddling out to super clean barrels.
3. Broken Head, NSW
Consistently one of the best waves on the east coast.
4. Saltwater, NSW
Awesome reef break/ fun.
5. Hellfire Bay, WA
One hour past Esperance in Cape Le Grande; super sharky spot but crystal clear water and uncrowded.
Caravana Sun play Solbar (Sunshine Coast) 7 June and Black Bear Lodge (Brisbane) 8 June.
