RE: Bring board or buy one?« Reply #1 on: February 07 2010 14:02:363 »
Depends I guess. If your going to established beach towns there'll be hire places, but it will limit where you can go. Those secret out of the way spots where you and your mate score perfect waves to yourself for days on end, you'd need the freedom of your own stick. Airline charges aside, I'm a big fan of carrying your own board. Hire boards always suck, take ages to get use to, and as I said, limit your freedom. I travel everywhere with mine (its a 6'3" so easy to manoeuvre in and out of buses and taxis etc), and I've never really had any hassle. I might think differently if I rode a mal.
