Being an Australian and travelling a lot, people are always asking me if I can surf - apparently that's a stereotype of us.
So right now I'm on the other side of the world in Tbilisi, Georgia and some locals are telling me it's their dream to learn to surf. But where on Earth would be the closest surf spot to here?
There's no surf on the Black Sea or the Mediterranean. There is some very good but very cold surf in Ireland and Scotland. I think there is some surf off France. But what about in the Middle East or India? I know you can surf in The Philippines but is that any closer to Tbilisi than California or Hawaii?
If you wanted to go on a crazy adventure with a surfboard and a van or hitchhiking out of Tbilisi Georgia, would it be possible to get somewhere where you can surf?
(Flying answers are probably not in the spirit of the question if they involve flying half way around the world.)
