Spain's latest way of alterna-travel is surfing. Weekend or weeklong trips available. Includes sleeping on a London double-decker bus outfitted with beds and a washroom.

If niche travel tours can be created for those interested in current affairsphotography and even just sleeping in, then why not surfers as well? That, indeed, is exactly the premise behind Spain’s Surf Road Experience, which offers weeklong expeditions in a sleeper bus to search out the best local waves.

Surfing is enjoying a fresh surge in popularity in Spain, so it’s no wonder Surf Road Experience is offering its surfing trips every week. The company has reportedly decked out eight British-style double-decker buses with beds, showers and all the amenities surfers might need, and every Monday new tours depart from the northwestern city of Vigo.

A surfing instructor goes along on each trip, and up to 12 surfing enthusiasts aged 12 and up are equipped with surf boards for the week. Days, then, are spent touring the mainland coast in search of good waves and good times, with surf lessons provided along the way. Trips for novices and advanced surfers are available; pricing is EUR 445 for a six-day trip or EUR 190 for a weekend version. The video below illustrates the Surf Road Experience in action:

There seems to be no end in sight to the niche travel possibilities, particularly when they can give participants some status skills and stories to show for the experience. Travel-minded entrepreneurs: Be inspired!
