Sleeping in Your Surfbag

•••
You love surfing and the sound of the sea? You'd never leave the beach if you could? Well, this one might be for you. Two fellows, Marta and Jez, both travelers and surfers, had the idea to construct a portable home for surfers. While looking for the best waves in Australia and Indonesia, they thought about how they could develop a surfbag that doub[...]

10 Great Surf Spots along the Atlantic Coast

I have been waiting all summer long for this moment: sandy beaches,  green sparkling waves, sunshine and hot surfer guys. And finally all those day dreams became true. My friend Leo, who I once met at a surfcamp two years before, invited me out on a roadtrip along the Atlantic Coast. Equipped with a VW camper van, canned food, lots of sun cream and our surf [...]

Paddle around the pier - Brighton's biggest party

•••
Sunshine seems to be quite rare this summer. This is why we should enjoy every sunny day and make the best out of it. And what makes a day be better than relaxing at the beach or getting involved in some outdoor activities such as skating, surfing or listening to some good music? Only one hour away from London you can find the cosy town of Brighton, which o[...]

The History of Surfing

•••
I don't need to tell you that surfing is an extremely intense and exhausting sport. It involves pretty much every part of the body, not rarely resulting in a nice physical shape as shown by the gentleman below. I do admit, that is also the reason why I sometimes just hang around beaches to watch the surfers catch their waves (and something tells me I'm no[...]

After having lived in London for a year, I finally found the time to go on a little roadtrip through South England and my expectations were absolutely exceeded.

Baleal - Europe's best surfspot

Spending most of 2010 in Portugal, I finally started to learn how to surf. I cannot say I'm a pro just yet, but my new hobby has brought me to some beautiful beaches and I've gotten to know some great people!

Studying abroad in San Diego

Copenhagen, Amsterdam, San Francisco, Istanbul, Roosevelt, Aachen, Madrid, Barcelona, Chicago… and the list even continues. But I had only one city in my mind for my study abroad semester: San Diego! Why? The combination of sunny weather, unlimited surfing, beaches and a relaxed society were just perfect for me to escape the busy big city life of London (whe[...]

The dog who could surf

•••
Surfing, bodyboarding and skateboarding? No problem for surfer-dog Osso. Two years ago I had the pleasure to meet this dog and the person, who taught Osso everything- his proud owner Christiano. During my travels in Peru I heard of the small surfer town Máncora, which is situated close to the border of Equador- that seemed like the perfect getaway from my ex[...]

I always dreamed about learning to surf, and found it such an attractive sport, but coming from the cold north, snowboarding (and a short-lived attempt to be a skater girl as a teenager) came first.
