If you're decided to go on surfing, you may take a look these two great surfing spots in the world.

Hawaii. Known as the Mecca of surfing, Hawaii is the capital of wave breaking and riding in the world. Hawaii has been providing an excellent surfing spot for decades. It is no wonder that it is recognized as the motherland of this water sport.

Choosing surfboards can either make your surf travel a lot of fun or it could ruin it out. The choice would really depend on your preference and the type of waves you will be expecting. Also, it is important to bring a back up surfboard in case your primary board breaks - which of course, you would not want to happen. It is recommended that you include in your surf travel packing list a small wave board and a small gun for larger wave riding. Also, you need to have your ding repair kits. Because airlines would not usually allow you to bring in cans of resins, you can just buy them in any surf shops in resorts.

In packing your surfboards, you need to have a travel board bag. You may also want to use high density foam cylinders which are usually used in swimming pools to pack and secure the rails of your surfboards.
