- Hi,my name is jacky and i come as au pair to martinique. And i want to surf in martinique but I want to buy a surfboard. because if you want to take your own surfboard with you, you have to pay 54 €. if you know any surfshop in matinique where I can buy an old surfboard from, another surfer, i would be very happy for some informations. Also I want to ask you about the bus. I want to travel from fort de france to the surfspots in the south of martinique(beachbreak) and my question is, is it easy to find a bus(in the weekend)? Cause there is only the family in martinique, i know. do you know any other surfers in matinique, perhaps any girls from fort the france? bye Jacky
