For surfers, the ultimate surf vacation—or surfari, if you will—includes digs within walking distance to the ocean, so you can take advantage of great surf the moment it happens.
With new a Web site for jet-setting surfers, Wavecation, you can find just that. The site is a handy hotel-finding tool that narrows down hotels, rentals, vacation homes and condos in surfing destinations worldwide to some 150 that are truly surf-front—you have to be able to “wake up and check the surf from bed”. Sweet.
The site’s founder, Matt Thompson, Travelandleisure.com reports, is an avid surfer who has travelled the globe to find the best breaks.
For now, the Canadian pickings are slim: it’s all about Tofino. (Sorry, East Coasters!)
