Unbelieveable Events in Baja!

I just got back from Baja! 

Baja Fresh that is.  They continually sucker us back for their food with “buy one get one” coupons.  I rationalize going there for a meal rather than a far cooler place like 1oth Ave. Burrito by convincing myself that the money saved will actually fund a surf trip sometime in the near future.   So while eating, I kicked around in my own personal Wander Lust Hotel, and I thought about some of the places I would love to go for waves.

Before hitting the road though I figure I should get myself that new board I keep talking about.  Maybe I will go for the Lost… SDII, as it looks like it could be a performer in a wide array of conditions.

Now, where do I go with all of that “buy one get one cash” I socked away?  Here are the 5 surf destinations that sparked my wander lust today:

1. New Zealand-  I figure that the long flight will mean that I should plan for an extended stay, which is fine with me.  Hitting the countryside in between swells sounds like a great plan.  I suppose I would start this trip with a session (or week) at Raglan.

2. J-Bay, South Africa- What regular foot would not have their interest peaked by the photos and history behind a wave like Jeffrey’s Bay?


3. Biarritz, France- In the summer you have a warm, trunkable lineup crowded with hundreds of people, and an area teeming with things to do.  Great food in between sessions would be a draw for anyone too.

4. Cloud Nine, Philippines- The wave is a tube from start to finish!  Not much more to say about that.

5. Uluwatu, Bali Indonesia-  Paddling out though “the cave” into a lineup with a wave that has multiple sections might just be enough to make me miss my flight home.


 While this is not a conclusive list by any means, I think it is a pretty good start.  And who would have thought that it would all begin with a trip to Baja.

  1. Great opener with the Fresh! I love it- and agree! Where do you get the coupons though?

    Valpak for the coupons! They have a conspiracy to get us to eat there once a month.

    Find that on the trail?

    Good article. Love the responses. We are all alike when it comes to food. Not one comment on the dream surf areas.

  4. The Valpak. You didn’t.
