Best country to be a refugee in claim welfare and kitesurf all day forever

Postby Kozzie » Thu Jun 27, 2019 2:47 pm

So i have been wondering. If i was to claim refugee status in any number of ways these days in any number of countrys. Which would be the best country to live in if all i wanted to do was sleep eat kite repeat.

I have managed to really knock down living costs to point i have been below the poverty line in every country i have lived in for the last decade and it just seems to get easier and easier. From africa asia australia eastern europe nothing is really a struggle.

Typical surf bum dirt bag climber lifestyle has always worked for me and i have met many kiters around the world doing simular things but it doesnt seem to be as prominent.

Anyways drop your favourite spot and costs to be a filthy wind gypsy so i can fire up the numbeo and immigration sites and do a bit of number crunching.

hard to beat spain i'm guessing...




since i expect sales of my 'umbrellas for wind assisted SUP foilsurfing fun' to push me into the top 1% of the top 1% pretty soon...
...whats the best "easiest" kitesurfing location to get a second passport?

If your question is more about eligibility for welfare as a non-citizen, I have no idea, but on the list of cheapest places to live/kite I'd have to think Vietnam or Thailand are really high up there.

This has me thinking. Understanding it all comes down to location, location, location. What can a single person live on $ wise in various kiting locations? Fantasizing living a simple kiting life

My buddy , (married to a Thailand girl , and lived there for 7 years) says :
i could kiteboard every day, and have a set of young twin sisters , to cook
my food, and service me every day ; and I'll pay next to nothing !!! :o ----- :D

“Next to nothing” sounds within budget :D yet is a nebulous figure. Any clarity as to $ amount? Appreciate any info on any areas

If you can kite, you can hold a freakin shovel. So I'm not too sure claiming welfare would go down too well everywhere...

How about contributing instead milking the system. Sounds like you want to take a refugee spot away from a much more deserving person.

Huh, who died and left you in charge of deciding who’s deserving?
