Work and Surf

« on: January 27 2009 06:01:00 »

Hi guys,

Am free from May 200 to June 2010 and I'm looking for somewhere (warm preferably) to live, earn enough to keep me and surf (am still a novice but hooked). Have used my Australia visa already so that option is gone and have no other languages. Any ideas, was thinking Canaries Islands, South Africa, Carribean etc..would love some help.

Hey! I'm thinking the same thing. Got back from travelling in October and just want the simple life all over again. I'm working till June but then wanna get outta here-some place warm where I can get up in the morning, go for a surf, work a few hours later when the sun is down and buy cheap food and chill-had any brainy ideas recently about what to do-same boat as you-used OZ visa-NZ can be cold-why can't hawaii or costa rica have working visas! Let me know if you came up with anything ; )

Hi Kikiwildchild,

Am planning to hit South Africa around Sept/Oct and work in a hostel in the Transkei (warmer water!!) where there is some good surf, I might travel up to Mozi and try work in the Tofu hostels for the first few months. No money to be made this side of the world but it will cost nothing to stay. Prob going to hit South America in Feb 09 for some travelling.

Till then it's to the Alantic for more pratice!!

Why not become an expatriate in samoa/tonga/PNG/Fiji. Many of these countries are looking for skills workers such as accountants, IT, engineering, Finance, Business, Trades. You can actually earn heaps of cash too, live cheap and surf uncrowded waves day in day out
