IS YOUR BOARDBAG GIVING YOU LONGING LOOKS? CAN YOU HEAR THE SOFT WHIMPERING OF YOUR BOARDS?
THEY ARE CRAVING ACTION. THEY NEED TO MOVE
Travel broadens the mind and nourishes the soul. It also gets you and your sled into some waves which might be that bit better than your home turf. It’s a big old world out there, so big you’ll need several lifetimes to explore it all fully, but you can make the most of this go round by doing your darnedest to explore as much as possible. How many continents you ticked off in your surfing life so far? Just one? Good old Europe? It’s a belter of a place to start and get your travel feels. Spain and Portugal are cheap, home to incredible fresh food and parties that go on a lot longer than us Brits are used to. Not to mention world class surf all over the joint. The next closest continent to tick off is Africa and Morocco is the classic winter destination for that next level of cultural wow factor. You’ll also surf points so long your legs will burn. Once you’ve got some travel smarts and can pack a board bag blindfold then long haul calls. The Americas are a rich in treats but you get more bang for your buck heading east. Sri Lanka is a magical island with waves year round and curry to die for. Indo of course is home to arguably the finest waves in the world and with thousands of islands to explore you’ll never run out of options.
You owe it to yourself to get away from the same old routine … get outside, go explore.
