Visiting from San Diego, CA - Hey, I'm visiting my family mid January and wanted to hook up with surfers. I brought a board to Alex once, and it was a hassle (2005), Now that Surfing is blossoming in Egypt, maybe I can find a rental ? that would be awesome. I can bring stuff with me (leashes, wax etc if you need something from the states
