The Locals' Guide - Lord Howe Island


Meet the locals - Ben Waters

Posted by Pinetrees Lodge – Thursday, March 28, 2019

Ben Waters, surfer and artist, lives the dream life. He surfs Lord Howe’s perfect waves, mostly alone, and then returns to work on his commissioned artworks. Ben’s connection to Lord Howe is through immersion – in every sense of the word.


The Locals’ Guide to Lord Howe Island is written by Denis Corcoran, Pia Funch, Luke Hanson, Geordie Tennant and Dani Rourke. We regularly visit the island’s iconic locations (and our secret spots) in different conditions, seasons and times of day (by foot, bike, kayak, boat and snorkel), and hope to share our experiences with you. If you need some travel inspiration, details on locations and the best activities, or just a brief online escape from your daily routine, then read our posts about life on Lord Howe Island.
