Big Wave Surver Jeff Rowley joins Caribee Backpacks

Big Wave Surfer Jeff Rowley has joined Caribee Backpacks

Australia Jeff Rowley isn’t just an international big wave surfer who chases the most dangerous swells on an endless loop around the world. He’s a paddle-in specialist. Which means he’s old school. It’s just him, a board and 40-foot waves.

Jeff Rowley joins Caribee Backpacks having surfed monster waves from Maui’s “Jaws,” to Tahiti’s Teahupoo to Fiji’s Cloudbreak and lived to tell the tale. He watches the weather, plots developing swells and when conditions are right, he grabs his passport and goes. He also a grabs a Caribee Backpack.

Gear is an important component to Jeff’s spur of the moment, remote travels. Everything has to work, whether its software to track swells, his quiver of surfboards or his luggage. And he relies on Caribee.

“Caribee is a great Australian brand and when you travel around the world, you see them everywhere – their travel luggage and gear bags will really help on my adventures,” Jeff says.

But don’t just take our word for it. See Jeff in action …
