Surfing locally is great, you know the breaks and you know the people yet you keep seeing
some amazing waves in surf magazines, wishing you could surf waves like that.
Well you can, there are a range of surf trips out there to some exotic locations around the
world but how do you figure out where and when to go?
You can ask other people where they have been to but there is much more to it than word
of mouth and as most people know, local knowledge is a handy thing to have.
