Backpacking around the world - rent or buy board? - 2011/05/28 00:38 Hey!

I'm going backpacking for three months starting in december. What's the cheapest and/or easiest thing to do - rent or bring a board? And if I bring one, what kind of board should I bring to fit most waves? I usually ride a 6'3'' or 5'11'' thruster. I'll be visiting Indo, Australia and central america.

Thanks a lot guys!

If you are going to going on buses/ public transpo taking a board is going to be tough. If you are going to be around waves the entire time, bringing one could be cheaper, but, throw in travel time..ect renting is the way to go.

My advice is if you stay more than 2 weeks somewhere buy and sell back when yyou leave, but for less rent.

Re:Backpacking around the world - rent or buy board? - 2011/08/22 20:04 Buying/retal or bringing a board is depending on which countries You visit. For Australia it's an easy choice: Buying/renting ist better, cause You'll find boards on every spot. On some remote destinations at Indo+America You may have trouble to get a stick. Depending on airline fees, I would buy a board when having a large supply+cheap price, take it to the next country an sell it where boards are rare. But take care: Some countries register boards and if You don't have it they tax You when leaving.
