Surfing Papua New Guinea
PNG is called surfing’s last frontier and for a reason. Papua New Guinea offers surfers guaranteed uncrowded waves thanks to the surf management plan implemented by the PNG Surfing Association. The management plan limits the number of surfers to a maximum of 20 surfers in each PNG surf region. When you take a PNG surf trip you directly support sustainable tourism and the local communities, with each visiting surfer paying a daily $12 environmental levy. This levy is in fact an access agreement to use the local breaks, goes directly to the local communities and provides needed support to the area.
If you haven’t been on a PNG surf trip yet then what are you waiting for? We are planning our annual PNG surf adventure to Vanimo Surf Lodge, one of the best PNG surf camps in November. After that we’re off to surf Kavieng in February for a surf & dive adventure.
In the last couple of years we have had a great bunch of people travel with us to Papua New Guinea. Everyone was surfed out by the end of their stay and enjoyed the great conditions on offer each time. Here’s what one happy surfer had to say after his PNG surf trip.
I recently took a PNG surf trip to Vanimo Surf Lodge, booked through No Limit Adventures. From the first email, No Limit was fantastic to deal with, providing me with extremely clear details, going the extra mile to ensure all went to plan. All flights, stopovers and connections went smoothly, Vanimo is a really well run surf lodge, everything well organised and the food fantastic. I’ve been to both Nusa Island Retreat and Tupira Surf Club and Vanimo is easily on par, even better, having cake and donuts baked by lovely kitchen ladies ????
Was there for a week and got a great range of waves, always uncrowded in PNG, with breaks to suit differing wind directions. Anyway, all I have is positive praise, which is well deserved.
