SURF TRAVEL CHECK FOR DISEASES AND IMMUNISATION BY COUNTRY.

urf travellers have a tendency to take the same die-hard atittude they display in their surfing into their travel plans when heading over seas. Preparing yourself for all conditions is imperative. Before you pack the surfboards, after you've checked the surf maps and decided which island or country you will visit, be aware of the risks you may encounter at your destination and of course not forgetting to make sure that you are well covered with Health Insurance. If you want to be surfing all your life and be travelling long into the future, heed the warnings. Knowing your surfing risks is one thing when dealing with overseas surftravel, knowing the health risks is just as important.
