Our aim is to create the most amazing surf and lifestyle experiences possible for you!

Perfect Travel Group, home of Perfect Wave Surf Experience, Perfect Snow, Perfect Dive, S-Resorts and A Perfect Foundation, among others, is the world’s largest travel surf travel group.

Sensing the time was right, in 2011 we made a conscious decision to channel resources into creating really cool, totally unique, exclusive experiences.  .

Perfect Wave’s Global Marketing Manager Ben Horvath and CEO Jamie Gray devised a completely original and unique offering – Surf Music In Paradise.


Surf Music in Paradise fuses a love of the ocean, and music, in one unique offering.


Days are spent surfing some of the world’s best waves at the best surf resorts in the Maldives or Indonesia, and as the sun sets Australian music legends perform live with the crashing waves as percussion.

The intimate gigs ensure that guests enjoy direct interaction with the performers and a front row experience.

In June 2014 The Perfect Wave launched the inaugural Surf Music In Paradise series featuring Donavon Frankenreiter at Kandooma Resort, Maldives.

In June 2015 Pete Murray and Matt Smith performed. That September Tex Perkins and Murray Patterson played 4 incredible gigs in 7 days, also at Kandooma.

The question on everyone’s lips after the Donny, Pete and Tex experiences was, how could you ever go to a standard gig ever again?

Sitting literally metres from stage on a bean bag, cocktail or beer in hand, partner, friends or family nearby, socializing and then surfing with the musos and like-minded fans is unbeatable!

The intimacy and exclusivity of these experiences is unbeatable!

he feeling of value beyond the actual surfing or music is unsurpassed in the marketplace.

Since Donny, Pete and Tex, we have been fortunate enough to host the likes of Phil Jamieson, Jimmy Barnes and Diesel numerous times now.

Where will Surf Music In Paradise end up?

No doubt, the sky is the limit!

In 2019 Bernard Fanning,The Hoodoo Gurus, Ocean Alley and Barnesy are confirmed to perform.

The concept is clearly much loved by both performers and most importantly fans.

One thing we will continue to guarantee is, Perfect Wave will continue to cap numbers that come along for the ride, ensuring Surf Music In Paradise remains a once-in-a-lifetime experience!
