Choosing the Best Value Surf Accommodation

Now I hate talking about money, it sucks, likewise I hate salesmen pitches to sell a product or service. However, when I’m on the buying end of a deal, I like to know I am getting value for my hard-earned money. So, with that in mind I pulled out a calculator (gasps) and did some maths for you guys. Have a quick read then send your credit card details to; imonlyjoking@justdont.lolz.
