Tony Roberts is founder and owner of TR / Real Surf Trips. He has dedicated his entire life to surf and cultural travel and exploration, capturing it on film and producing it to inspire others. At Real Surf Trips, all this experience goes into every trip he creates and guides and every movie he shoots and edits of his guest’s trips. Will that make a difference in your surf vacation? Yes and in a major way.
Besides being named one of the Top 6 water photographers of all time and an award winning editor and producer of over 50 movies, Tony is a lifelong world class surfer, recently winning first place at the 2022 Masters Open in Dominican Republic.
“On a day to day basis TR can go out there and smoke you. That’s what’s so cool, he really cares about our job as pro surfer, and his dedication to his job as photographer”.
“Having the freedom and perspective of traveling, of not conforming to everything that’s going on around you is really important, and I think Tony’s got that.”
With a lifetime of traveling, surfing and shooting the globe, Tony combined his talents to create Real Surf Trips. Decades of full time knowledge of experiencing all the formulas to get the best waves on Earth, combined with his unique and notoriously hard working photo and video regimen, and his deep friendships of key local families and communities at the best surf spots in Latin America and The Caribbean, that now are his guides and hosts at all Real Surf Trips locations, combine to offer surfers of all levels a rare and valuable opportunity to experience these amazing destinations in an intimate and special way, and to have it captured on magazine quality photos, HD video and make a movie edit of your trip.
