So many surf trips, so little time… SE.com ponders the yings and yangs of an Indo safari vs a Euro excursion.
There’s probably a bee’s dick in it as far as cost’s concerned. Sure the flights, insurance, hire cars and new boards involved in a trip to Indo aren’t exactly cheap. The pay back though is that once you are there, assuming you haven’t booked a two week trip on the Indies Trader or intend to spend your whole time in the nightclubs of Seminyak, you can still live incredibly cheap in Indonesia. Even our Greek tragedy of a euro still buys bucketloads of rupiah, and if you want to eat healthy and surf your ring out it’s possible to spend in a month in Indo what you spend on a massive night out on the continent. Just be prepared to eat rice, a lot of rice.
