    Potential Move to Puerto Rico

    I didn’t shop there but same week my card got hacked for a $3,000 plane ticket. Met groms dad’s son in water he was ripping. Fat out of shape me not so much. The days above I surfed Wildo and it was terrifying on some sets. Spent 90% of the time trying not to cleaned up. Only saving grace...

    Planning two weeks thru Oregon and Cali in May

    The entire west coast basically sucks in May. It’s windy, water is freezing from upwelling, and there is not much swell. The fall and winter is far better and September is a prime month for west coast surfing.

    Potential Move to Puerto Rico

    I went and bought a stay covered big wave leash for this swell and glad I did. Wildos was MACKING. I quickly realized I was out of my league when I saw people wearing flotation gear and using big guns. Had 2 good sessions and one where I got sucked up the reef and cleaned up hard. Glad I had a...

    Potential Move to Puerto Rico

    slowest part is finding a contractor. That took almost a year! Build time is more or less 8 months to a year. Considering Christmas goes November to Feb here basically they are making good time. the build process is very different to standard USA style homes and takes time to ensure the quality...

    OZ Gold Coast February into March

    yamba/angourie is a trek down there. I much prefer staying in the south gold coast and driving from there but i am partial to surfing the gold coast points. I love surfing lennox and the area around cabarita but the options are much easier in gold coast. All depends how rural you want to be...

    OZ Gold Coast February into March

    Do not stay north of Miami/burleigh area. Only reason to go to the Gold Coast proper is to go surf at south straddie. very easy to get around on the m1 motorway from northern nsw. I think you should stay beach front in cooly or kirra if you can afford it. You can walk to snapper/dbah/kirra and...

    OZ Gold Coast February into March

    Yes absolutely and high chance of scoring absolutely pumping waves. If the Gold Coast is small you can drive south between the Gold Coast and ballina is going to have something for sure. also snapper and dbah are the most talked about but there’s plenty of other point breaks and scattered beach...

    Best place to go in late December into new year

    PR is not cheap at all, it can be cheap but in general not cheap. The area around Rincon is full of crowds/learners and is much more sheltered and far less consistent that other areas like aguadilla and Isabela. Depending when and where you surf you can easily avoid crowds especially if you are...

    Potential Move to Puerto Rico

    just was down there for 3 week. They have all the walls complete for the first story. They are waiting on the concrete truck for 2 weeks now to pour the columns so they can start on the second floor. Got waves at Jobos and at inches in patillas. Good trip but hotter than the surface of the sun...

    Potential Move to Puerto Rico

    gas can be cheaper, food is roughly the same as california. Cars are very expensive as is electricity. Things can be found for very cheap if you know where to look. I generally think its similar to a middle to high cost state with the exception of housing.
