Pick A Surf Vacations Destination that Would Please Everyone
When you plan surf vacations with a non-surfing partner, the first thing you should do is finding perfect destination. You don’t want to go to a very remote island where everything you can do is limited to surfing. The remote and surf-famous Mentawai, for example, is perfect for surf fanatic—but not so much for regular traveler. You want a destination that would also be easy to the non-surfers.

Pick a Nice Accommodation
If you are the one who want to have this surf vacations, you have the mental responsibility to find a nice accommodation for both of you. We know that comfort come second for most surfers as long as they get to enjoy the best of pointbreaks. But if you bring your non-surfer significant other, don’t drag them to lumpy mattresses, crowded bunkbeds, or crappy hostels. Spend extra money for something nice and give them the trip they deserve.
