Topsea Israel Surfing Center
Tel Aviv may lack the consistent big waves needed to draw international competitions, but it does boast a vibrant surf community who relish the city’s proximity to the water – so long as there are some waves.
Within this nascent community, Topsea is regarded as an authority on everything surf-related. Offering an array of services, from equipment rental and surfing classes, to surf cams and phone-in surf reports, Topsea presents a one-stop shop for everything a local or traveller may needs for the water.
Founded in 1957 by Topsea, who also founded the Israeli lifeguard association and helped introduce surfing into the country, the centre has become synonymous with the sport and the Tel Aviv beach lifestyle. It has also taken an avid role in raising awareness about the struggle to keep the beaches clean and free of privatisation. They will even help plan your trip to Bali or Hawaii once the surf-bug fully sets in.
