I think any surfer dreams of making an endless summer style trip, seeking the perfect wave in tropical paradises around the globe.
Of course, surfing is not the only thing I want to do, but for me it is still one of the highlights of the trip.
The initial idea was to do a surftrip in Australia, Indonesia, Morocco, Brazil and Peru. For a long time I was searching only the best surfspots of each country, the right season, maps of swell and car hire in each place, so far so good.
But the problem are the baggage excess rates, take them by train from Singapore to Bangkok, and Madrid to Agadir in southern Morocco, how often would have to pay storage in the airports which probably would be the case in Hong Kong, Delhi, London, Paris, Brazil (Rio), Peru and Chile, not counting the possibility of breaking and crushing the boards in all of these flights .
I asked Rodrigo, Cris’ brother, how is to ship the boards from bali to morocco, he told me there is a great risk of breaking the boards and I would have to organize and store the boards until I get there.
He suggested that it would be better send by some courier like fedex or ups and organize the storage of them, but this is more expensive than buying new boards (something around NZD 3000.00).
So until now the best option is the best lead the boards to Indonesia, sell them there and try to buy a used or rent in other peaks.
If you have any suggestion please help me!
