Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I surf and am willing to host.

{PLEASE NOTE: Here are important things to consider before you reach out:

1) Have a verified profile. I realize this takes $$ so here's what works for me; post your Facebook or LinkedIn profile so I can see how and who you are.

2) Understand we have a two-night MAXIMUM stay. If you ask for more, you didn't read my profile. :) There might be a few exceptions but it's pretty rare.

3) Our current "couch" is an air mattress in the living room. If that doesn't work for you, send a friend request instead :)

4) While CS can be a way to find "free" lodging, the spirit is cultural/ideological exchange. Plan to hang a bit so it can feel like we all made a new friend or two.

5) I always ask my kids' mom to weigh in on whether or not she feels you'd be a good surfer. Some of these items reflect her concerns. :)]

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

My CS experience is limited but it has been enjoyable. Tried CS during my trip to the Masters Track & Field Championships and stayed with two very cool hosts.

[update 04/22/13]
Enjoyed surfing in France (summer 2012). Met wonderful people and our experience was greatly enriched because of the local experience.

[update 08/01/14]
We decided to begin to open our home to surfers and are expecting our first surfers soon. When you request, we tend to start at 2 days and see where it goes from there.

[update 12/15/14]
We have been very surprised at the variety, quantity and quality of surfers we've had the chance to host. We've hosting a couple from the Canary Islands, a researcher from German, a French professor and some musicians. CS is very cool far.
