I’m obsessed with travelling to places where you can surf every day. I’ve spent more than 17 years weaving fun surf and delicious coconuts into a ‘normal’ life of university and ‘real’ jobs. But I’ve gradually become too precious for hostel dorms and surf camps: I now need my own bathroom, kitchen, a massage therapist on speed dial and waves that won’t scare the crap out of me. And I also need bomb-proof wifi and a good place to work.
Last year, while my partner and I were living by the beach in Peru, it occurred to me that I’m not alone in my surf-lifestyle wishlist. Many adventurous people who freelance or have the flexibility to work remotely also want to surf before breakfast, get their work done and experience other cultures. But it is a ton of work to plan a trip that meets all those marks and most people don’t have the time to pull it together. And they can’t afford to show up somewhere to find out the wifi, surf or vibe isn’t what they’d hoped.
