About

Who am I


Hi! My name is Charlotte and I’m currently living life on the mother of all surf trips… A little while ago I left my job as an accountant in the UK, rented my house, kissed my friends and family goodbye and set off on in search of sun, swell and warmer waters…

The inspiration behind A Broad on a Board


When I was preparing for my trip, having not backpacked or travelled alone before, I relied heavily on the invaluable information and advice from other bloggers. From giving me the confidence to travel solo, to fine tuning my packing list, I couldn’t have done it without them. The only thing that was lacking was a comprehensive, unbiased guide specific to surf travel. I decided to use what I’d learnt on my travels and create A Broad on a Board to fill that gap and to give other surfers, travellers and backpackers the information, inspiration and advice they need to turn their own surf trip or travel dreams into reality.

Big ambitions


My goal is not just to produce another travel blog. My aim is to create an independent, trustworthy resource where anyone travelling or planning a surf trip can get all the information and advice they need, whether that be where to go, when to go, or what to pack, to detailed location specific information and tips that I have gathered on my journey…

Even if you’re not planning a surf trip or travelling, I hope I can provide a little inspiration and escape, and that you’ll join me virtually on my adventure.

See you in the lineup!
