I more or less have the next nine months to do what I please - no work or school. I surfed for the first time in Costa Rica a few years back and was able to get up on the board and ride waves during the first hour of a group lesson. I also snowboard and am decent after only a few years of experience (can traverse easier black diamonds). Surfing has always been something I want to become good at, and I'm looking to take advantage of my time off to really push myself at surfing. I'd love to just fly somewhere remote (Asia? Australia? South America?), enroll in a surf camp, surf all day, meet interesting people, read novels, take pictures, and hang out on a budget for a few weeks or more.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
