Questions to ask yourself before leaving

When you decide the destination of the trip, you have to ask yourself some questions because they will help you narrow the list:

  • What types of waves do you prefer? So you like long grinding points? Are you interested in trying shallow and high performance reefs? Are you into mellow beach breaks?
  • How far do you want to travel? In the majority of cases you do not have to change the flight, but you should decide from the beginning how much time you want to spend on the road.
  • What is your budget? You should know that in the majority of cases the flights are expensive, if you choose an exotic destination. So you should establish your budget and according to it decide the destination and time you will spend there.

What type of accommodation do you prefer?

The vibe of your trip is the most important one, and there is no other factor that influences it more than the accommodation. You may be traveling solo, but this does not mean that you want to be single all the time. So, if you are looking for surf buddies, then you should choose a surf camp. Surf travelers prefer camps, because they have a social aspect and they offer you the possibility to meet new fellows. You also have the possibility to rent a surf boat. If you are eager for exploring new places, then you should consider this option. Also, you can rent a self catering apartment, in case you want to spend more time in the same place.
