I´m a german girl and surfed the french atlantic coast for 6 month last summer and this year i want to go to california and travel down the pacific until i reach costa rica.
I own a perfect surfer van and want to sell it to someone who loves watersports, especially surfing and uses it for his/her freedom. It´s a huuuge mercedes 809 van, yellow, 9metres long, 3,2metres high, inside high enough for 1.87m tall men to stand without problems like hurting the head, CB radioinstallation, camera for reversing(i never used it), kitchen with gas stove, washbowl and table for four persons easily to sit, high quality cassette recorder (very loud and clear sound) , double bed (enough space for three persons,too) and single bed, space for surfboards and stuff(enough for a motorcycle, i had one with me for buying bread or going short distances because the van is so big),solar paneels on the roof for electric light in the evening and the Hifi, and a little "balcony" on the roof where you can sit. the van has a strong engine and you can travel with an average speed of 100km/h while it needs 10-12 litres diesel. There´s also a former bathroom where you can store dieselcanisters and leave your "beauty-stuff" (if you need more than a toothbrush) and clothes. i have been very glad with him and were living a whole year (this winter,too) now in the car (it has also gas heating if it´s raining for days or cold evenings, you will need it sometimes). it´s everything made of wood in the car and although there is a lot of stuff in it it´s not plastic-luxurious like the thypical old-people-camper, it´s just perfect for living and having a good time. I would like to have 6000€ for it, so think about it and tell your friends, maybe you buy it together.
surf now, apocalypse later
