Paul Berry or ‘Bezza’ as he is affectionately known by his friends is the driving force behind Surf N’ Dirt Adventure Tours.

Paul has travelled extensively around the world and knows what makes for a great adventure. His goal is to bring that passion for unique, memorable travel experiences to you.

His philosophy is simple. Paul wants to take you to his favourite places in the Margaret River region and provide you with the most memorable experiences possible.

In 2009 at the age of 24 Paul arrived in Margaret River on a surfing trip and instantly knew that he had found the place where he wanted to spend the rest of his life. He fell in love with the raw and ragged coastline, the large and powerful surf, tall Karri forests, meandering rivers and the friendly locals.

For years Paul would show his overseas and Australian friends around the Margaret River region and they would always tell him that he should set up an adventure tour company. Throughout this time, he worked at the local pub, taught people to surf and hosted wine tours around the region, but it was always a pipe dream of his to start up his own Margaret River tours.

It unfortunately took the passing of one of his closest friends for Paul to realize that life was far too short and could be snatched from you in the blink of an eye. His friend Chris Evans had been a best friend since childhood and was also his travel partner on the majority of their overseas adventures. Chris was the most adventurous person that Paul had ever had the pleasure of knowing and inspired him to bring his pipe dream to reality. Chasing your dreams is somewhat of a cliché these days, but Paul certainly makes it known that he is living his every day through Surf N’ Dirt Adventure Tours. The business was launched on what would have been Chris’ 31st birthday and the tours quickly became regarded as a ‘must do’ experience when visiting the Margaret River region.

Paul spent so many years chasing adventures around the world and he now finds himself in the very fortunate position of having the world come to him to experience their own adventures.

It is a responsibility that he doesn’t take lightly. If you are on one of Paul’s tours then you will be looked after like family and it won’t take long for his enthusiasm and love of the Margaret River region to rub off on you. He is a natural people person who is charismatic, entertaining, always upbeat and has a deep respect for the environment.

His broad smile, relaxed nature, love of adventure, storytelling and gregarious laugh (one of his nicknames is the Parrot after all!) are the perfect ingredients for any tour of Margaret River.
