Local festivals can be such a great experience for surfers and local communities who want to introduce foreigners to their customs. I’ve always found that when travelling though that it can be hard to find them without doing a lot of research, and most of the ones I’ve seen are because I was just coincidentally there at the right time.
Events for festivals may require more effort to organise, and may attract a lot of people, so maybe we should give them a special status. Maybe we could broadcast them out ahead of time to people planning trips, or find other ways to make them easier to find. I think this could be a great way to get people to places that aren’t main cities.
What do you think?
