  1. I love the Internet!
    I am the guy who likes the challenge. I’ve tried already Windsurfing and all the time think about surfing.
    British Virgin Island that is perfect. Luck better to me than Australia.
    But before I plan my trip I need some information. How I go there? Can I book all inclusive? What will do my wife when I am surfing? What is the cost of a vacation for two people? Do I need my one equipment?

  2. I did never get the opportunity of surfing 🙁 . But it thrilled me when I saw people surfing in the sea. Wish one day I will surf in the best surfing places in world as well as the places you mentioned in the article. Would please let me know which things actually need for surfing?
