Thanks for the replies!
I found a friend who actually has a place in Gdynia which has ferry and train access to Hel, so I lucked out there. Going to get about 4 days in over there!
Thanks for the Croatia info, I'll "nudge"
the lady commander in direction of one of those places..
What kind of wet suits are you going to be using out there in August? Will a 3/2 suit be enough? for any cold summer water?
I hope that after 4 days of running around doing lessons and hopefully grab a rental? Can I also grab a rental or assisted surfing out in Croatia?
