Surfing is a solitary pursuit. It’s you against, or hopefully, working with Mama Nature to get your stoke inducing dose of the glide.
Sure surf trips with mates are a blast, but sometimes it’s good to strike out on your own. You can’t always find a wingman or woman. Sidekicks ain’t always on hand after all. Travelling by yourself is epic, no decision by committee, no faff with where or what to eat, no dilly-dallying deciding where to surf: just you and yours pleasuring yourself. So to speak.
The downside is you can’t split the costs of rental cars and rooms but fear not, modern surf camps are set up for solo travellers, you’ve got a pop-up bunch of mates just waiting for you. It’s a chance to engage with actual humans, not stare at a screen, meeting fellow travellers is one of the best things you can do. Exchanging stories and tips on spots to check out, play cards and hell, even have a few shandies.
Surfing is a big worldwide family. Wherever you go, you’ll meet likeminded souls. So pack that board bag and explore. The crew below are waiting for you…
