Going to be at UNSW, question on surfing and where to live

« on: March 21 2006 17:03:00 »

whats up. I'm from chicago USA and  i'lll be studying in sydney at UNSW and was wondering how far that is from any of the beaches.  Also, i have never surfed before, but have been skateboarding for like 10 years, and just got into snowboarding, was wondering how hard this shit is gonna be to pick up.

Also what is the deal on getting a board. do you rent, find somebody with an extra, or what.

lastley im just wondering if anybody has any suggestions on where to live.  I want to try out surfing a bunch, but want to be close the inner city so i can get my skate on some street spots. At the same time i dont have tons of cash to be droppin on rent.

thanks mark
