It’s approaching holiday season so if you’re wondering where to book your flights to, and if you’ve misplaced your copy of the 2016 Travel Guide that came free with Issue 80, then we’ve got you covered once again in Issue 81.

 

Take a look at ‘5 Star’, our latest mini-guide to the best spots for flat water, waves, travelling with family and more besides. It’s summer now so whether you fancy checking out the flat water paradise that is Cape Hatteras and the Crystal Coast in North Carolina or somewhere totally different like the North African wave playground of Essaouira then we’ll tell you where to go, when and why!

“Offering a much different cultural experience than its close proximity to Europe might suggest, Essaouira plays host to a number of surf camps during the main season.

“Vast, wide open flat water as far as the eye can see also features soft, meandering curves of ultra flat canals that weave through the marshes on the edge of the island to create an unbelievable kite-adventure playground.
