When it comes to surfing and travel I’m sure all of us dream about our perfect trip, setting off somewhere warm, with endless waves and casting aside everyday life. Not all of us have the opportunity to make our dreams a reality but one couple from the UK’s North East coast have done just that and left the 9-5 behind to travel the length of the Pan American highway on 150cc motorbikes with only surfboards and each other for company.

Tom Bing and Sally McGee are riding small motorbikes from Santiago, Chile where they started in Oct 2015 with their eyes set on making it to California later in 2016. They are hugging the coastline as much as possible, passing through 12 countries in total clocking up around 15,000 miles.
