Maybe it’s their sun-kissed skin, or their always-perfect, saltwater-enhanced hair, but I’ve always thought of surfers as the chic French girls of the sports world. There is a vague, hard-to-identify mystique surrounding the surfer world—I mean, those wave riders are basically standing on water!
Good news: There are ways to live out those Blue Crush fantasies. (We’ve all dreamed about it, right?) So start saving your vacation days, and book a surf-school getaway. Below are Airbnb rentals located in or near popular surfing hot spots. Because what’s better than having a dreamy crash pad to return to after a long day of catching waves? (Other than a soak a dreamy tub with your favorite luxe bath accessories, of course.)
