The Inside Mail on Four Seasons Seychelles

TS GUIDES – BEN STOKES AND STEVE TAYLOR

We often surf alone or with a few locals. There’s a variety of dreamy waves at Seychelles, which are best during April, May, June and July. You’ll find everything from beginner beachies to long points, and many reefs, slabs and long walls.

Keen for adventure? Charter a luxury boat to Praslin or La Digue islands. There’s a wedgy left reef break on La Digue that can be world class.

At Zez, the guides favorite is the Tasmanian rib fillet and the cheesecake. Tuesday night at Kanal is Creole night, with stalls, local artworks and great local bands performing in traditional attire.

If you’re a beer drinker, the local beer Seybrew is great. Or if cocktails are your style, a Mojito made with the local Takamaka rum. Just chilling at sunset drinks at the Kanal Bar by the beach is the place to be.

Book your spa appointment to finish just before sunset. Then enjoy a bottle of champagne at the hilltop spa where the views are sensational. Hire a car and drive to waterfalls, exotic beaches, cafes and a 9-hole golf course.

If you can arrange a driver to drop you off and pick you up, the one- way mountain hike across the top of the island is sensational. You’d want a local guide.

Snorkel with Wise Oceans. There’s beautiful marine life and the educators can explain interesting facts.

Stand Up Paddle in the late afternoon when you have a good chance of seeing eagle rays gliding around the shallows.

Where does a Tropicsurf guide go to unwind?

December 17, 2021

For surfers especially, travel is often in the blood. Most of us aren’t blessed with tropical, uncrowded waves on our doorstep and so we dream of a time and a place where this can become the ‘new normal’, if only for a week or so. But for our Tropicsurf guides who call these palm fringed beaches and turquoise line ups home, we can’t help but wonder what their surf travel dreams look like. When the relentless travel between dreamlands becomes too much of a good thing, where do they go to recharge? One of our most frequent island hoppers, Ryley Haskell give us an insight…

The Elucidations of Woody Gooch
The Elucidations of Woody Gooch

July 01, 2021

Still in his early twenties, Noosa-raised Woody Gooch might be termed an enfant terrible of the photographic world, except that there is nothing childlike about the incredible body of his work, and his persona, far from being frightening, is the dreamy presence of the skatey/surfer/adventurer that he is.
