Learn Where? Cheap long term stay, Lessons & Board - 2012/04/11 21:49 Learn Where? Cheap long term stay, Lessons & Boards

I want to take 2-3 months off, maybe more and go somewhere in the world where:

GOAL:
- Learn to Surf...& spend time focused on learning
- Enough / to get to decent skill level to be able to get back to REGULAR surfing
- Once I get a day JOB and get started with REGULAR life, I don't want to have to come back to US/Europe and again have to take lessons

INEXPENSIVE LOCATION:
- Learning / Lessons would be relatively cheaper
- Long term Living would be cheaper (in terms of dollar exchange rates)
- Waves & Location are good for newbies/ Learners, helping them pickup a decent skill level

AND:
- Is hopefully safe (Don't get kidnapped, messed over Turistas style)
- Can find a similar Peer Group who would help to learn surf, make friends, do other things when the days Surf & energy is over.

PLEASE SUGGEST:
- The best places to go based on above stuff
- Good Beginner & Learning Locations & Cost info (Lessons & Boards, Long term Stay etc)

(I am guessing Asia / Latin America would be cheaper?)

Re:Learn Where? Cheap long term stay, Lessons & Board - 2012/04/13 03:18 Hello,
If you speak English, come to California. Hang out in San Diego, rent a house w/ others who are traveling and surfing. Go to places like San Onofre, other places that are good for learning w/ minimal vibes from regulars/locals. There are lots of breaks from Los Angeles down to the Mexican border. Maybe stay at a campground as long as you can, tents, food, supplies bought at a grocery store are much cheaper. Be able to lock your stuff up when you are not around. You can camp for like $15-$30 a day. Campgrounds, Carlsbad, San Clemente, San Onofre.... check out campgrounds near breaks on the net.
If you get out every day, paddle, watch others who surf and just get out there, you probably do not need to pay for "formal" lessons.

I have a friend who lives in downtown SD so I could probably crash at his place.

But, right now I was looking for suggestions on things not in the US and an area where LIVING, FOOD & SURF board expenses / costs do not have to be PAID in DOLLARS.

I am hoping to go to a place with good Dollar to Local Currency ratio where my Buying Power goes up and the place ends up being cheaper for long term stay.
