Sail/Surf Adventure!

« on: September 17 2012 09:09:00 »

So....I have never surfed before.  I skate and snowboard, but have never surfed.  From what I hear it is much different.  Anyways, I really want to learn how to ride waves.  I am also in desperate need of a long vacation.  After watching the documentary "180 South"  I realize that is what I want.  I would love to assist someone with sailing their boat, while seeing other countries and learning how to surf.  I don't know what the first step is though.  Anyone have any experience?  I need an adventure!

I have thought of starting in Southern California and getting my bearings for surfing for a few weeks and then possibly working my way south down the Western coast of Mexico.  I am open to flying somewhere different to start, but have know idea where in the world has a good fall season with warm water.  Starting off in a surf school would be amazing, but I don't want to burn all my cash in the first week learning.  I am open to the idea of surf school to start though.  Comments on any of these shaky subjects would be a huge help to me!
