My girlfriend Jamie and I are taking the scenic route back to California after finishing a loop of Africa (see Round Africa with a Surfboard), where I spent most of the time running around looking for waves to ride. Well follow part of the ancient Silk Road, riding from Eastern Europe to the Caucuses, cross the Caspian Sea to tour the Stans without a plan, rip across the grasslands of Mongolia, all the way to far side of Russia, and hopefully find a way down into China. This is me. This is Jamie. Our trusty steed, Dyna Rae, has been beat pretty hard with the Africa stick, but she's still kicking. Finding waves to ride in off-beat places has made for some of the most memorable experiences on the road. There are surfers in the Arctic Circle of Norway, the Black Sea, the Caspian Sea, even far eastern Russia and the South China Sea. Hardly a surf trip, but more of an excuse to look around between the two coastlines of the largest landmass on the planet. Its a long way to go for a wave, but at least its on the way home.
