I am headed to Ecuador in March and am debating bringing my own board or renting down there. Any suggestions? Also which airlines are reasonable about bringing a board and which ones are bastards? Thanks.
PS if anyone has been down there before - did you like it?
I've never been to equador... but I would base it on the availability of boards down there. Do a bit of research to find out the shops that will be able to rent you boards, and what kind of supply they have.
Personally, i never like leaving my trusty boards when I'm on trips.
Always bring your own boards on a surf trip. Spend your time surfing and learning a new break instead of learning a new board at a new break where you'll only spend a limited amount of time in the water.
