Summer is approaching, one of the favorite seasons for lovers of good weather, the sea breeze, and long days. If you’re still unsure about what to do for your summer vacation, we have a few ideas for you:
1. Take a surf trip
If you’ve come across this blog, it’s because you’re interested in surfing. You may have been practicing this sport for many years and are simply looking for options for a surf trip, or you may want to go on a trip and be curious about learning to surf. And what better way to learn this sport than in a paradise like the Maldives, Costa Rica, etc.
There are many ways to plan a surf trip: you can go on your own, join an organized surf trip, etc. Usually, agencies that organize these types of trips offer three ways to spend your stay: in a hotel, a surf camp, or a surf trip by boat. It all depends on the plan you choose.
For us, the best way to make the most of a surf trip is by staying on a boat. It’s a very unique experience, as you’ll live on the boat, and the main objective is to sail the sea in search of the best waves. We recommend taking a surf trip by boat if your main goal is to surf.
For example, if you’re going with your partner, family, or friends, and you want to include surfing in your vacation but also want to take advantage of sightseeing or other activities, we recommend staying in a surf camp or hotel. Here’s a guide with tips for your next surf trip.
2. Learn to surf
If you’re considering starting to surf during your summer vacation, it’s best to do it in countries like Morocco, the Maldives, etc. Surfing is one of the booming water sports, and if you want to learn, you have many options to do so. In the north of Spain, you’ll find incredible places to practice this sport. Here are some ideas to help you plan your next getaway in search of surfing:

3. Explore a new country
Are you someone who enjoys visiting new countries? Choose one of the destinations we offer or send us a message with the country you’d like to go to, and we’ll organize your trip! Spend a week in paradise-like places such as Sri Lanka, the Maldives, and get to know these destinations thoroughly: their people, culture, beaches, forests, etc.
4. Immerse yourself in a new culture
When you visit a new country, it’s challenging to truly experience the essence of the place in just one week. We have been traveling for many years, and although our focus is on surf trips, our experience has taught us that the best way to get to know a country is by spending time with its people. In our case, we have been fortunate to meet many people while surfing, and after spending a few hours exercising, who wouldn’t enjoy a beer? Take a surf trip and let yourself be carried away by the plans proposed by the people you meet. «Yes» will be the answer you’ll have to give to each proposal they make.
5. Dive in crystal-clear waters
Are you passionate about the sea and all the wonders it holds? Swimming in crystal-clear waters while observing the marine life below is an indescribable sensation. You are detached from reality, as if no one can see you there, and you feel like you’re on another planet.
It’s a feeling that many people seek to enter another «dimension» and escape from the everyday and everything our eyes are accustomed to seeing. It’s beautiful to see how you can move through the water, observing all the life within it without disturbing the natural habitat. Don’t forget to practice responsible diving; nature takes care of us, but we have to take better care of it.
