What to Bring
Always keep this in your mind that less stuff means less responsibility. Try to bring only the important stuff. The things which you actually need for your skateboarding trip are your skateboard, all necessary safety equipments, you passport, your wallet and your cell phone.
Food poisoning is a real thing. Nothing is worse than losing control of your physically functions, particularly when you’re on a trip. Try to avoid streetfood as much as you can.
Your passport is the one of the most important things to have when you take a trip, particularly when you are international. Carry your board onto the plane in order to keep away from paying extra at check-in. It’s often a fine idea to take off your wheels and trucks, especially in case when you are travelling with multiple boards.
Holidaying with your friends and colleagues is less expensive because everyone will be sharing the cost of transportation, tour tickets, food and accommodation.
A large number of airline companies, resorts and hotels also provide group discounts to the customers who travel in group. These days, your cell phone is your guide to life. Try to keep a power bank with you all the time so that you cannot run out of battery.
It makes you more confident and strong
Skate travel with your friends and group can push you to try different adventurous things, which you would never do on your own. It forces you out of your comfort zone and allows you to be braver. There is nothing more exciting than a group travel. One can make a lot of memories and experiences that are felt deep in the soul. Travelling is fun but with the company of love ones it becomes more electrifying and exciting.
Always try not to bring too many valuables. Cameras, laptops, and cell phones are fine, but leave those fancy electronics, watches and other expensive things at home. We can only enjoy when we feel free and light.
