The Most Unusual Surfing Destination Ever


Iran: Sistan and Baluchistan province

Althought You might not expect a surfing spot in  Iran, in the village of Ramin, in the country’s south-east Sistan and Baluchistan province, an amazing surfing school.

We Surf In Iran not only teaches men, women and children how to surf, but also how to craft their own surfboards, and educates about marine life and water safety.

The school’s efforts were documented in last year’s film Into the Sea, which showed how Irish pro surfer Easkey Britton, along with Iranian pro snowboarder Mona Seraji and Iranian diver Shahla Yasini, began introducing surfing to the area’s local women.
