Thread: Trip ideas?

  1. Trip ideas?

    Looking for a surf trip that would be cheap for an east coaster, besides PR. Did PR loved it but I want to look into other trips

    Barbados used to be cheap until they instituted a VAT a few years back. Now everything there is more expensive than here.

    Maybe El Salvador or Panama?

    How cheap is cheap? Caribbean is going to be pricey, just about anywhere. I like northern central Florida and southern north Florida. You can drive it in a day, and find reasonable rentals. OBX has a better shot at surf. New England and Nova Scotia have great surf potential and are not expensive, but it's bloody cold (personally, I don't mind that).

  6. I live in NH so I like to get away from the 6/5/4 from time to time.

    Black and littered with sea lions and naked old men.

    Actually, I haven't been down to Black's since last September when I did my little crowd sourcing experiment, so I have no idea. Thanks by the way, I had friends in from out of town and had no idea the WCT (my ignorance of all things pro-surfing is profound) event was going on that weekend, so good call. We would have gone up North otherwise.

    Why? What's going on with the sand?

    Somewhere in Cali yesterday, I got mine:

    LOL, I ganked it off the erBB, I don't know what end of a camera to point at people. I would have just linked it, but surfer mag has some re-direct when you try that. Din't even think to look at the name of the photo. J Ewing does good work. That's pretty much how all SDCo looked the last 2 days. Good stuff
