Wwoofing and Waves


Surf travel can be crazy expensive, but it doesn’t have to be. Patagonia surf ambassador Patch Wilson spent a few months scoring uncrowded waves in New South Wales all while eating and sleeping for free. Wwoofing (Willing Workers On Organic Farms) is a program that trades a few hours of work a day for accommodations and fresh organic food. If you don’t mind being a bit off the grid it sounds like a fantastically economical, educational and healthy way to travel.


Drew Innis

A New Englander through and through, Drew grew up in Connecticut / New Hampshire and got over educated in Boston. He also lived on a beach in Southern California for some years. Film, photography, music and literature monopolize his time these days. Drew lives in Brooklyn, NY, eats too many cheeseburgers at the Commodore and hopes to carry on simply one day on a big piece of land by the sea without the computer or YouTube.
