Photographer's Note

Tel Aviv, situated along the beach at the eastern shores of the Mediterranean, offers surfing all year-round. Though water temperature gets cool at winter with lows reaching 14 degrees Celsius, winter usually offers the best swells if you are an experienced surfer.

Tel Aviv surfing is generally mild, nothing like the power surfing Mecca's of Way Mea bay Hawaii, Kuta Beach, Indonesia, Bell's Beach in Australia or the likes, but you can still enjoy a great surfing experience in beach-oriented Tel Aviv.

In recent years, a surfing culture has been developing in Israel. If you wonder around the beach, you will see many surfboards (and other marine sporting devices) in the beaches when the swell is up.

The surfing bug spans all types of people and all ages, from 6 year old kids to 50 year old lawyers, but for some reason, not enough lady surfers are seen at the beach like in California or Australia. You will see long boards, short boards, buggy boards of all sizes shapes and colors.
Water temperature in the Mediterranean varies extremely between winter and summer. At summertime the water gets as hot as 28-29 degrees Celsius, and that's hotů.! During winter, the water cools down to a quite-cold 14 degrees Celsius, so you will need a wetsuit. In the interim seasons the temperatures are gradually shifting, colder at autumn towards winter and hotter at spring towards summer.
