Alternative Fuel

There are many places where getting to the surf can be a challenge. Parking lots (if there are any) are often restricted to residents, full, and/or costly. Some places even require you to take a tram from the parking lot to the beach. Simply put, it's not the way I like to roll. So, for a few years now, I have dreamed of combining my love of surfing with my love of cycling and the accessibility that traveling on two wheels provides. I bought a Carver surfrack over a year ago and finally installed it this month. This week marked our maiden voyage. The freedom was ridiculously satisfying. I look forward to exploring other surf spots via two wheels!

Yay! That is so great! I've always wondered how people go with a longboard on a bike. It's usually windy here. Lots of people in Bali drive around with a board attached to their scooter, but the board doesn't always come out of the traffic too well.

Yeah Hannah! So stoked on this. High traffic areas could certainly be a problem with the longboard; narrow places too (I tried riding it on the sidewalk at one point and it was sketchy). But for the most part, as long as there is a little shoulder on the road, it handled surprisingly well! That said, there was some wind but nothing too gusty.
