Carve - - TRAVEL GUIDE -

Is there a bet­ter feel­ing than ar­riv­ing at an air­port, get­ting your board bag on a trol­ley, and wheel­ing it into De­par­tures know­ing that once you’ve ne­go­ti­ated check-in and se­cu­rity you’re this *does fingers 2mm apart mime* close to go­ing on a surf trip some­where really far away?

The an­tic­i­pa­tion of any long-haul trip is half the fun. You’ve done the re­search, you’ve scoured the guides, you know where you want to go and the good sea­son. Then it’s just a case of find­ing a flight with a rep­utable surfer-friendly air­line (check carvemag.com for our an­nu­ally up­dated guide to the good, the bad and the ugly) and sort­ing some sweet digs. On that side we can help you also as the folks you’ll see in these pages are some of the best in the biz. From that point on it’s get­ting sun­cream, trop­i­cal wax, and all the stuff we don’t ever need at home. Fol­lowed by weeks of dream­ing about wa­ter warm as wee, surf­ing just in biki­nis and/or board­ies and the best waves of your life.

Travel is good for the soul. Sure long-haul isn’t do­ing you any favours when it comes to your con­tract with the planet to be a good cit­i­zen, but you re­cy­cle and do ev­ery­thing you can in all other as­pects of your life right? Plant a tree or two when you get back. Ev­ery­one needs a hol­i­day af­ter all, and in a lot of the poorer parts of the world, your tourist dol­lars are help­ing folks on the bot­tom rung get a leg up. If we all stop trav­el­ling the world will be a poorer place for it.
