How to Achieve Freedom by Working Online


At its most fundamental, time is freedom. The more time you have that is your own, the more choices you have regarding what you want to do and how you want to direct the course of your life. What this tells you is that you can increase your freedom and stop feeling like you’re being led around in your own life by freeing up more time.

 

And one of the best ways to free up time? Working online.

 

This is perhaps the most common example of lifestyle design: working online so that you can start to choose when, where and how you work. Now you can decide to make your work fit in around your lifestyle instead of being forced to squeeze your life in when you can.

 

The Digital Nomad

 

What does one do with this freedom once they have it? Well, a common choice is to become a ‘digital nomad’. This term describes someone who travels the world while working online. They use the ability to work not in an office as a way to work on the move. These people travel from country to country, meet new people and see incredible sights during the day. Then, in the evenings, they use the rest of their time to work in cafes and bars – anywhere with a power socket and an internet connection.

 

This is true freedom. These people are able to support themselves but in doing so they are also getting to climb mountains, see famous landmarks and discover other cultures. They aren’t tied to any one place and surely that’s one of the truest demonstrations of freedom.

 

The Alternatives

 

But the reality is that not everyone would enjoy this lifestyle. Some of us need colleagues to avoid going mad and many of us have partners or families that depend on us – we can’t afford to go travelling for days on end.

 

So instead, you can use the same thing to just have more freedom at home. 

 

How about working in cafes near you? Or perhaps there’s a beauty spot you could enjoy working in? Because there’s no commute though, you can spend an extra hour in bed. And if someone invites you out for an impromptu lunch? Then you’ll be free to take them up on that offer!

 

You can travel more but still come home in between to spend time with your family and with your creature comforts (like tea…).



Stop Deferring Your Happiness – You Can Already Do the Things You Want to Do


One of the biggest wrong assumptions that the vast majority of people on this planet make is that they aren’t able to do the things they want to do. To clarify, the assumption that many of us make is that we don’t yet have the means to live our dreams and that the only way to do so is to work harder.

 

Thus we put off doing the things we want to do and we end up taking on more and more work until the point where eventually we are spending every waking moment either working or feeling stressed about work. 

 

I’m here to tell you that it’s time to stop putting off your happiness and to embrace it. Here’s how…

 

There’s Never a ‘Good Time’

 

One of the most common arguments people make for not travelling the world, starting their own business or building their own home is that it’s not a good time. Right now they have too many financial commitments, they don’t have enough money or they have too much else going on. You probably are all too familiar with this!

 

But now think back to all the other things you’ve achieved so far. Was it ever a good time? If you’re a parent, then was it a good time to have a baby? Was it a good time to get married? A good time to start a relationship? A good time to buy a house?


When we have to, we make things work. There’s never a good time so if you really want to enjoy living your life to the full you only have one option: do it anyway.

 

It’s Easier Than You Think

 

And actually, many of the dreams we have are much easier to fulfil than we might initially think. For example, if you want to travel then you don’t necessarily need to spend a fortune or take a year off work.

 

How about identifying places a little nearer that you can travel to and then using budget airlines to go there for long weekends? How about a year of visiting the capital cities you can reach on short haul? That would be a fantastic year and doesn’t need to upend your life!

 

Want a better home? You don’t need to spend millions – just empty out your property of things you don’t need or redux your kitchen. You’d be surprised what a different small tweaks can make!

How to Look and Feel Like a Highly Successful Digital Entrepreneur


There are many reasons that you may have been attracted to the idea of working online. For many, the allure of being completely free to work when and how they please will be enough. For others, it comes down to the feeling of satisfaction that comes from financial independence.

 

But for some, it’s the allure of being highly successful. For some, it’s the appeal of being successful, accomplished, powerful and wealthy – of being able to live that hedonistic lifestyle of travel, partying and womanizing/manizing (?).

 

In other words, some of us just want to be highly successful in the traditional sense and to get the feeling of reward and power that comes from that success. Internet marketing makes this possible because it gives us a way to earn money that isn’t ‘limited’ by conventional career trajectories.

 

You have the prestige that comes from being an entrepreneur, and you have the theoretical ability to learn limitless money. You just need a good idea, a little business savvy and the dedication to put in the work. Do all that and you can quickly become highly successful.

 

You can rub shoulders with bankers, lawyers and other highly successful individuals, enjoying tailored suits and lavish parties – all without putting in the time at the bottom of the heap.

 

The Problem

 

But there’s a problem and that is the fact that many of us don’t know how to live this lifestyle. Many of us want that successful lifestyle but we miss the vital steps. Many of us end up simply working our behinds off at home, not remembering to brush our hair or do our teeth, and then looking completely dishevelled whenever we do leave the house.

 

Working alone is not highly conducive to presenting ourselves will and what many people don’t appreciate is that running a business is a lot of hard work. Without a boss to motivate you, you can end up falling behind quickly. And then you end up making up for it in the evenings, or by diving straight into work without getting ready for the day first. This is especially true if you are so driven by being ‘successful’ or wealthy. Kind of ironic!

 

The Solution

 

The solution is actually to make sure you leave space in your day for looking after yourself and investing in your look. We all know the saying: dress for the job you want. This is just as true when you work for yourself because dressing well will make you feel more successful and effective. 

 

But knowing that and actually acting on it are two very different things. If you want to spend time on yourself, then you need to ensure you give yourself that time – and more importantly that you give yourself that energy. That means clocking off at a set time and dedicating some hours in the day to getting dressed and ready.

 

Develop a morning routine. This will make it easier to ensure you get dressed and ready the same time every day and will ensure you start your day with the right enthusiasm, mood and footing.

 


How Working Online Will Change You


Lots of articles have been written about the kind of person who becomes a blogger or an SEO, and the ways that you can make yourself better at blogging or running a website. What is less often discussed however, is how working online can actually change who you are as a person and influence your personal development. There are many ways that this can happen and a number of common effects that blogging can have on your personality and your attitudes. Read on to meet the person you might become... 

 

How Jobs Impact On Us 

 

I used to proudly claim that I hadn't changed, because I became a blogger and never bowed down to the man. I have no colleagues as a blogger meaning that there was no one for me to become ‘more alike’, but this in itself can have an effect on you. And likewise, working from home and earning passive income has probably had some impact on me too. Blogging/optimizing changes you just like any other job, only it changes you differently. Once I was self-aware enough to recognize this, I set about finding out what had changed about me. Here's what I came up with... 

 

Care Free 

 

I would say that compared to my other friends, I am more carefree and less restricted. While my friends have to work 9-5 jobs and get very stressed if they stay out too late one night, I can remain flexible and free to work when I choose and where I choose. If I'm honest, this has also led me to somewhat resent those people who aren't free to hang out because they have work the next day. I guess it's fair to say that I've become somewhat detached from the 'real world' and regular routine. 

 


Opinionated 

 

Writing online regularly has also made me somewhat opinionated. Sure, I'm opinionated in my views on employment (and self-employment), but I've also become very used to expressing myself a lot online and sharing my opinion. This undoubtedly crosses over into my daily life, as I tend to wax lyrical about pretty much any subject that I get the opportunity to talk about. 

 

Independence and Confidence

 

You also get a lot of confidence from working online. Once you’ve made money yourself – completely yourself – you realize you’re capable of anything. This helps you to feel more successful and generally means you get used to ‘being the boss’.

 

And with that comes increased independence too. You don’t rely on anyone, and you have countless projects to pass the time when you are alone.

 

An Unusual View of Money 

 

In some ways, being an online entrepreneur has made me stricter with my money. The money I've earned has been entirely down to my own effort and is a reflection of my success, so I feel more personally affronted when I spend it. On the other hand, though, I also think of money now very much in terms of overheads and profits. Spending a little money on a friend is just another 'overhead' and I can earn it back by working a little extra hard for a while. 

 

These are just some of the ways you change when you become a blogger or a digital marketer. Of course, the precise changes partly depend on who you are to begin with. Either way, expect to grow and change and to get more from the experience than you necessarily bargain for…

 


Power User Tips for Internet Marketers


Being a 'power user' is a term that sounds much cooler than it is. Actually of course this just means being able to 'work even quicker on the computer' which when you think about it isn't something you'd probably have bragged about back in the playground. 

 

Nevertheless, being a power user means that you can get more done, be more efficient and ultimately earn more and create more in a shorter timeframe - which is pretty cool. 


If you’re a digital marketer, then this is especially important. So read on and learn these power user tips that can help you work faster and smarter.

 

Use Google Keep 

 

Google Keep is a web app that Google designed with similar note-taking features to Evernote but a less steep learning curve. The concept is great - allowing you to quickly take a note in your browser then access it from your phone, and in practice it really is very convenient for accessing your ideas and photos from wherever you are in an intuitive, minimal and quick way. 

 

Use Your Bookmarks 

 

If you aren't using your bookmarks properly then you are missing out as they can help you to work a lot more quickly online. Bookmarks can let you navigate instantly to the pages you use regularly, and that can include your work e-mail or the collaborative site you use at work. If you want to prevent yourself from procrastinating so much in the morning, then just make the page you need for work your homepage - that way this will be the first thing you see, and you won't be tempted to browse Facebook before getting down to it. 

 

Better yet, consider using the Google Chrome app ‘join’ which can be used to send tabs, bookmarks and more directly from a phone to a PC and back again.

 

Get a Headset 

 

Having a headset for your computer can liberate your hands while you're talking on the phone or taking notes, and this can be incredibly useful for multitasking. Use a headset and you can chat to clients while answering e-mails, or dictate notes with voice recognition software. 

 

Learn Keyboard Shortcuts 

 

Learning keyboard shortcuts can save you a great deal of time when it comes to getting through large workloads. A few taps of your keys and you can have opened new documents replaced elements and saved and once you get used to doing this it will become almost like breathing. 

 

Have Multiple Monitors 

 

Working with multiple monitors is something that almost every power-user swears by. This way you have more screen real estate for running multiple applications and you won't find your workspace so crowded. If you don't have space for two monitors, then bear in mind you can use a television or even an Android tablet as your second screen (the latter of which will probably also impress colleagues). 

 

Another option is to get an ultrawide monitor, and studies suggest that this can increase your productivity by as much as 30%.

 

Organize Your Folders 

 

If you want to work as quickly and efficiently as possible then it pays to think ahead and to set everything up to be easy. One way to do this is to organize your folders so that everything you need is right at the top and in a logical place where you can find it quickly. 

 


Step by Step Instructions for Becoming a Digital Nomad


A digital nomad is someone who works entirely online in order to be able to travel freely wherever they want. A digital nomad will normally be found wearing just a single backpack with a small laptop or hybrid slate computer slipped in, and will spend their time moving from WiFi-providing café to WiFi-providing café in all kinds of sunny countries. 

 

The idea is that they get to travel and see the world, while being able to easily fund their movements and not have to worry about getting into major debt. Sounds ideal right? 

Well for the right person it is. As long as you can bear to be away from your creature comforts and you don't need the social stimulation that comes from working in an office, then you can use this as a way to live the kind of life that most people only dream of. 

 

But how do you go about making that leap? Going from an office worker to a digital nomad? Here's the process in a simple step-by-step form. 

 

Speak to Your Loved Ones 

 

What stops most people becoming a digital nomad is not their jobs really, but rather their relationships. If you're in a romantic partnership now, then you'll need to talk seriously with your partner about the prospect of you travelling the world. Hopefully they will be supportive and recognize it as something you need to do. If not? Then you'll have to decide what's most important to you. 

 

Speak to Your Employer 

 

Before you give up your job, you should first ask if there's any way you can set up a remote-work arrangement. Explain your ambition and your manager may help you to make it a reality with no career-change necessary. If not, you'll need to try another tact… 

 

Start Earning 

 

The next thing to do is to start earning some cash off of your own back online. Do this by writing articles for webmasters, by creating web designs or even by providing proof reading services. You can advertise these skills on a webmaster forum or a site like ODesk or even Fiverr. The aim is to start generating just a little work so that you can start to gain confidence and 'wean' yourself off of your 'main job'. Once you're earning enough to be confident you can quit – remember you don't need that much money to do this. 

 

Better yet, consider becoming an internet marketer. By selling affiliate products, PLR products or your own digital products, you can earn money even while you sleep. Or how about becoming a travel blogger and that way turning travel into a financial asset rather than a burden?

 

Speak to Your Mum and Dad

 

You will need a lot of money if you want to pay rent and travel the world at the same time, but if you are willing to throw out a lot of your things and get your Mum to look after the rest then you can free yourself of this financial burden. You might have friends who can do this, but Mum is your best bet seeing as it’s a rather big ask. Otherwise consider storage, but make sure you'll have somewhere to stay when you get back. In general, you’re probably going to have to cut back a little on your possessions!



The Best Places to Work if You Work Online


If you work online, then you have the freedom to be physically located anywhere in the world and to still earn an income. This is an amazing freedom that so few people are afforded, and it’s one of the top reasons that many of us are attracted to the notion of working online in the first place.

 

It’s a minor tragedy then, that so many people who manage to make their income online, will not take full advantage of this. So many people who work online equate this to working ‘from home’ in a very literal sense. That means working out of a home office, or working in bed. Sure, this has its appeal too, but it’s not exactly taking full advantage of this untethered way of working.

 

You can go anywhere if you work online. So where should you go?

 

Working Abroad

 

Of course, the natural conclusion is that working online should mean working abroad. That way, you can see more of the world, experience other cultures and truly live a kind of life that wouldn’t be possible any other way.

 

I have done this a fair bit myself. One of my favorite memories was finding a friend who also worked online and travelling to Croatia. There we explored and saw the sites during the day (and had some great adventures!) but in the evenings we would work in cafes and bars.

 

Sure, many people would rather be out partying during the evening, but my friend and I are introverts. And we love what we do. So, the idea of being able to sip a beer and watch the world go by, immersed in the atmosphere of the nightlife… it was incredible. One evening in particular, we worked in a bar listening to some Euro music while watching rain hit the cobbled streets outside and watching people pass by on their holidays. It was a great feeling and really made us grateful that we had the opportunity to work this way. On another occasion we hired a small log cabin from AirBnB in the mountains of Switzerland. There we worked while sipping tea and enjoying a view of the mountains from our wooden balcony.

 

For the Non-Digital Nomads

 

I’d like to point out at this junction that I am not a digital nomad. That is to say that I do come home in between trips and you can do the same. You don’t have to give up all your creature comforts or your relationships in order to enjoy travelling as you work. Working online means you can just travel more.

 

And even in your local area, there are no doubt more exotic and exciting places you can work. Anywhere with an internet connection where you won’t get kicked out can make a great place to get work done.

 

Working in a coffee shop is the most popular and sensible option. As long as you spend a little on coffee, you should be able to stay there as long as you like and most will have free wifi and power. Plus, you can enjoy people watching and listening to the background chatter, all while avoiding the many distractions and temptations that come from working at home. Libraries are great too!

 


The Most Useful Tech for Online Entrepreneurs


Are you interested in working online? Thinking of becoming a full-time entrepreneur? Then what you need to realize is that your lifestyle is going to change in some big ways. Simple things like no longer having an office and no longer having colleagues will make a huge difference to the way that you spend your days and your workflow.

 

And with those changes will come new requirements for your tech. In order to get the most work done, you will need specific hardware to help you get there. You will no longer be able to rely on an office desk being there every morning when you get into work. So what tech should you invest in? Here are some important and useful considerations.

 

A Laptop

 

Firstly, you will likely want a powerful computer for handling some of the more demanding parts of your work. If all you do is basic SEO, then you can get by with something simple, but if you intend on doing any video editing etc., then you’ll need something with some more impressive specifications.

 

Getting a laptop is also a good idea, because that way you’ll be able to work from anywhere. The only problem is that getting a computer that is at once highly powerful and highly mobile is not so easily done. 

 

Good options include: the Surface Pro, the Macbook, the Surface Book, the Razer Blade and the Dell XPS 13 and 15. My pick of the bunch has to be the XPS 15. This device comes with a Kaby Lake i7 processor, a GTX 1050 GPU, a 512TB SSD harddrive and 16 GB of RAM and is considerably less expensive than a Macbook.

 

A More Mobile Device

 

Something I highly recommend to any digital entrepreneur though, is that they also invest in an even more mobile device to work on. One of the great things about working online is having the freedom to be able to work from anywhere. Use something like the GPD pocket – a tiny 7” laptop – and you can slip it in your pocket when you’re done. Another option is to get a folding keyboard for your phone, such as the Microsoft Universal Folding Keyboard.

 

A Great Phone

 

You’ll find that you can also actually end up doing an awful lot of work on your phone. Whether you’re chatting with clients and business partners over Slack, or you’re managing your content via the WordPress app – there’s a surprising amount of work that can be done from a phone these days. Invest in a good one and consider the requirements of a power user: such as a large battery, lots of screen real estate for multitasking etc.

 

Kit Bag

 

You’ll also need the right bag for carrying your stuff around. If you’re going to stay productive, then you’ll need to be able to carry a lot with you and you’ll need to have all of this to hand when you need it.

 

Some things to keep in your bag should include:

 

·      Powerbank for getting extra charge

·      Portable harddrive for extra storage

·      Noise cancelling headphones for working on planes and trains

Recreation—An Elusive Thing that You Have to Grab Hold of


In today’s hasty world, one thing that most of us have forgotten is that the human body needs to relax. We need to take time out for ourselves. Our bodies are more complicated than any machine man has ever devised. Even the best of machines requires to be energized in some way or the other and they need to rest if they have to work for a long time. But, with our own bodies—these amazing machines that nature has provided us with—we are completely laidback. We don’t realize the need of rest for our body machines. And therein lies a major problem.

 

Today, most people flinch at the prospect of rest. There is so much work everyone has taken up that resting seems like a taboo. It is something you should not speak of. It is something for the lazy people who can do nothing good in their lives… that’s the sorry impression we have about rest and recreation.

 

But this attitude can only take us faster to our graves. If our body doesn’t get the chance to recharge itself, how will it be able to continue functioning normally? How do you hope to make your body more productive the next day if you don’t rest today?

 

Rest is one thing; recreation is another. When we are resting, we are just shutting ourselves off from the world for a while. But when we are recreating, we do something that we enjoy. We enrich our minds when we recreate and at the same time our brain is happy because we are doing something that we love. It releases more endorphins and that’s the reason our entire body attains a state of natural felicity. This is a factor that can enhance our health in great measure.

 

However, the important thing is that recreation isn’t something that comes naturally to us. We have to take it. Like for hunger or thirst, we don’t have an instinct for recreation. That’s the reason we don’t ‘feel’ the need to recreate, but this is definitely something that we should do.

 

Whatever it is that we like to do—go for a walk, watch a movie, listen to a song, read a book, write something, talk with our friends, take the dog out, play with our children—we should do. We should spend time doing that for at least a few minutes every day. This makes our mind richer and our bodies fitter. If we want to make a well-oiled, productive machine out of our bodies, then we must not forget to give it its dose of recreation each day of our lives.

Components That Bear on Retail Gas Prices


There are assorted components that affect retail gas prices. Rising costs in fossil oil in the world market has quite an effect on the eventual price of gas. Fossil oil price is commonly determined by global supply and demand.

 

If there are supply breaks of fossil oil in the world market, it greatly impacts retail gas prices. If there's an event that decelerates or stops production of fossil oil producing countries, the deficiency of supply would send the fossil oil price up. And as the demand greatly grows due to fossil oil being a crucial ingredient for assorted industries, the rise in costs will trickle down to gas with fossil oil being its raw material.

 

Additional matters that may affect retail prices of gas include its accessibility and distance from supply. In regions where gas supply has to travel really long distances, there's a likelihood that prices for it might be higher than in regions in close proximity to the gas supply. 

 

Apart from distance from supply, retail prices of gas might also be impacted by environmental programs and local ordinances being followed in a particular area. There are particular regions, countries or states that demand gasoline to be particularly formulated to meet up with particular local standards. This is commonly done in order to protect the environment. 

 

Particular regulations require that refined gas be further redeveloped in order to help reduce pollutants being released into the air. This may require adding particular chemicals in order to help cut down carbon monoxide discharges as well as additional pollutants when gas is being burned. In order to meet up with particular ordinances of particular states and countries, such operations must be additionally executed and therefore might add up into the retail cost of the redeveloped gas.

 

A different huge factor of retail gas prices being dissimilar from one place to another is because of rivalry. If there are quite a number of retail filling stations to pick from in a particular area, the likelihood of gas prices being cheaper there is elevated. The main reason is, naturally rivalry. With many retail filling stations attempting to share the local market with other retail stations, getting buyers attracted is crucial. The most effective way to do this is by attempting to offer cheaper fuel prices than the rival.

 

In a place having just a couple of gas retail stations available, the gas prices would tend to be greater. The reason for this is that the need would still be a bit higher with only a couple of retail stations able to supply the supply. In a few cases, the consumer might be made to choose- whether to purchase cheaper gas at a retail station location a lot of miles away or purchase gas from a nearer station offering up more expensive gas prices.

 


Ideas To Endure High Gas Prices


Gas prices have been high recently. It looks as if there would be no ease up for the recent experience of climbing of gas prices. It's a great thing that the price of fossil oil may have gone down a bit. But it appears that this may just be for a little bit.

 

Auto driving has become quite an expensive action. Autos, for the most part, are a requirement for a great number of individuals. Only a few may be considering giving up driving because of the elevated gas prices. More individuals would instead be considering enduring the recent rise of fuel prices. Enduring for some may be applying some means of preserving fuel when driving. One way that this may be done effectively is by bettering the car's mileage. Aside from purchasing a new car with a better fuel consumption rate, it may also be possible to improve the mileage of your current car. Here are a few ideas that may help you out.

 

A car's mileage may be considerably improved by merely becoming more effective at car driving. Effective car driving is acquiring careful but effective driving skills. Averting aggressive driving might be one way. Driving aggressively is manipulation of the car with sudden speedups and braking which may waste a hearty amount of gas. You may waste from five to thirty-three percent of fuel with aggressive driving. This waste may add up. Enduring the rising gas prices may mean driving more cautiously and avoiding sudden speedups and stops. Driving this way may help better mileage.

 

A different way to better the car’s mileage is by eliminating accrued excess weight. Some cars may easily amass a lot of junk inside the trunk over time. A few individuals might just ignore this, but the extra weight may really lessen the car's mileage. By merely making the car lighter utilizing less gas on each trip might be possible.

 

A different way to maintain a car’s great mileage is to have it regularly checked out. Autos go through wear and tear each time they're being utilized. Over time, this may pile up and affect the car’s gas mileage. One way of attempting to avoid this is by following a car’s preventive maintenance schedule.

 

Most autos follow a particular maintenance schedule that lets them stay efficient over time by keeping it correctly maintained. A well-maintained auto may still get great mileage even after a lot of years on the road. Steady maintenance checks will let even an aging car run with great mileage.

Surfing Hawaii


As a surfing enthusiast, you know how great the experience is whenever you're out in the water. It can be very stimulating and you'll feel free and no one will be there to stop you from enjoying your time in the water. You may have been too many surfing destinations to practice your skills and also to have some fun and you know that you relish every time you get in the water and ride the big one. All the same, this can easily be messed up if there are just too many individuals in those places you surf on. So, here are some of the best kept secrets in the world of surfing. The first is Honolulu, Hawaii. 

 

We all know that Hawaii is known to be the surfer's heaven and that you think that you'll find it hard to find a private beach to surf in. All the same, there's a surf spot around Honolulu, Hawaii that's just beginning to be found. It's just a little way off downtown and you will need to look a bit in order for you to find this beach. You will need to trek a path that is considered to be a bit dangerous. Also, the waves here aren't packing all the time but when it does, you will experience some of the best surfing there is on the entire island. 

 

The second is Lanuza, Surigao del Sur, Philippines. This spot in this island country is one of the best kept secrets in surfing. Despite the fact that this place is known to host major surfing competitions, you need to consider that it's quite hard to get there. In fact, it will take you five hours or so from the airport just to get there. Siargao is also known to be the country's top surfing destination, which overshadows this spot. 

 

Oahu, Hawaii is also another place where you will find a secluded place to surf in. You will be able to find this secluded area east of Oahu, where you will experience fantastic beaches, and clean waves. The place is virtually empty of people and like other secret surfing spots, it will be hard to get there that only surfing fanatics will really face the challenge. The place can be a challenge to get to but when you get there, the rewards are regular waves, fantastic beaches, and great scenery. Summer is the best time to visit as the waves will be a lot cleaner and bigger. Lake Michigan, Sheboygan, Wisconsin is another surfing destination that houses a secret surfing spot. Known as The Elbow, this place is only for experienced and most fearless surfers. 

 

The water is frigid and that there should be a storm nearby in order to generate the large waves. The danger itself is what stops most surfers from visiting but if you're the type of person who loves a challenge and you think about living life to the edge, then you should definitely try going to this place. So, if you really prefer to surf in peace, you may want to test some of the mentioned destinations. You are able to be sure that these places will be able to fulfill your cravings for channel-surfing.

 


Extreme Waves of the World for the Extreme Surfing Enthusiast


Surfing is certainly a fun sport to do. All the same, there will come a time when surfers will prefer to experience more intriguing and more extreme waves. Just where can one find these extreme waves? If you're already an expert surfer and you prefer to test your skills. Here are some of the most extreme waves that the world has to offer. 

 

First, you need to remember that surfers measure waves from the back. What this means is that if the biggest wave of the day was 30 feet according to the surfers, you'll find that the people keeping an eye on the other side of the wave will be riding a wave that can be as high as sixty feet. Imagine, if you surf a wave like this, it would be like running away from a collapsing six-story building. In Cyclops, Western Australia, you'll find the heaviest and the more serious waves that the country has to offer. This wave is seldom surfed as its dangerous and most surfers choose using body boards as the waves here break on to shallow rocks. The wave here in Cyclops, Western Australia is a right-hand wave which breaks on a coral reef. It's a fast, hollow, and powerful wave which ranges quite high in the ratings.
