Einstein was quoting Wile E. Coyote.

Yeah, thats what I used to do. Not a problem in places like Puerto Escondido where there is a constant flux of surfers, and local shapers on hand, but I got burned a few times - once I couldn't sell my board before leaving and I ended up having to bring it back and spent a fortune (they broke it - go figure) and once got to a more out of the way destination and the only board I could find was either a 7' funboard or a 5'5" little grom thruster - neither of which was ideal. Totally ruined my trip cos finally I was somewhere with no lineup, but there was also no boards.
but it can be a good solution, as you say. Thats the thing - there is no perfect answer for all situations, and what we have done is come up with a viable solution as just one of the options a surfer has when going on a trip.

There is one other alternative I thought I'd mention.
