Caspian Sea is quite good for surfing. My hometown even holds competitions on kite-surfing. The best time for this is in August and September. Later is bit dodgy as waves are really high and water is cold. So I would advice to go to Makhachkala. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GcvgxA6y7UA N.B. Be careful nowadays it’s not the safest place in the world :(

South Coast cities famous for surfing and great beaches: Malibu - you must check out the regional classic point break at the Malibu Lagoon. Contests are held throughout the year and surfers are crowding for the best waves at other times.

Funnily enough, there's an answer on Google Answers by omniscientbeing-ga which seems ideal. I'll reword and adjust for here. The real trick is finding a place that is good for both diving and surfing. I could list a ton that are good for either or, but it's tough to come up with places that have surfable waves and good diving that meet your criteria. That ...

The actual cost of food and drink should not be that much of an issue - subsistence food is relatively cheap everywhere. In some countries, surf culture includes staying in your camper van, or camping at the beach, so if you do want cheap, the way to go may be to club together with others and buy/hire a van or micro-bus. Ferrugem in Brazil is popular. ...

South America has some amazing beaches to go surfing you might enjoy besides the ones you have in Argentina already. I am not sure what would be 'cheap' for you, you certainly will have the cost of the trip to the destination as one of the most important expenses. Costa Rica is a good option, although is more Central than South America. You might consider ...

I've been to San Diego a couple of times and both times stayed in vacation rentals instead of hotels. This worked great for our family because it meant we had our own garden and felt very settled while we were there. We stayed somewhat north of the city in Del Mar and Encinitas. Both these areas were great. I'm not a surfer, but there's always lots of people ...

Dahab, Egypt. It is about one and a half hour drive from the larger city Sharm el-Sheik, which offers many of the same activities, but Dahab is much less touristy. It is my impression that the conditions for diving and surfing is much greater in Dahab, but the city is much smaller, and there is no beach and party culture. So dive/surfing connoisseurs take ...

Okinawa, Japan. I've done snorkelling there and my friends did scuba diving. Fantastic reefs, great variety of fish, turtles and apparently wrecks from World War II. One can choose diving spots both on the East China Sea and Pacific Ocean. As for the surfing, there is a number of surfing spots suited for beginners but some are only for experienced/kamikaze ...

Nicaragua. You have world class waves on the Pacific side and then cheap, top-notch scuba in the Corn Islands on the Caribbean side. You won't regret it. San Juan del Sur is your best bet if you want a good mix of beaches and nightlife, although there are better breaks further north. Little Corn Island is a topical paradise with caves and fairly unspoiled ...
