Travel tips

– pack as light as you can, but in September the evenings can get a bit chilly

– if you have your own equipment, you can put everything you have in the boardbag

– for couples or groups, sharing the hold luggage is your cheaper option; put all your clothes in one person’s normal luggage, and all equipments in the other person’s boardbag
