Dave Rastovich surfing in India in Taylor Steele’s Castles in the Sky, the sequel to Sipping Jetstreams. The opening sentence of Sipping Jetstreams sums up that feeling of travelling and surfing pretty well:

It begins with a dream. A vision seeded in your mind. But the next step is the one that counts. The first step. Onto the plane. Into the sky. From that moment on, the journey takes on a life of its own. You step off the plane and into the jetstream of travel.
