Surfing Papua New Guinea

With uncrowded waves, exotic cultural experiences and some of the world’s most picturesque natural beauty, add Papua New Guinea on your surf destinations list. An adventurous and unforgettable surf destination.

Located just south of the equator and 100 miles to the north of Australia. Papua New Guinea enjoys warm waters and consistent waves (Oct – April), complemented by the rich and diverse traditional culture time of its people in its premier surf destinations of Vanimo, Wewak, Madang and New Ireland provinces.

Papua New Guinea occupies the eastern half of rugged tropical island of New Guinea (which shares with the Indonesian territory of Iran Jaya) as well as number of smaller islands and atolls in the Pacific. The coast and island atolls are packed with coral reefs generating quality waves for surfers! As a surfing destination, Papua New Guinea is relatively new to surf enthusiasts, but the breaks are quickly becoming known for providing a great challenge that will keep surfers entertained for days! The uncrowded surf ensures that you will have a magical trip.

The main Papua New Guinea surfing season is October through to April (from the Northern hemisphere swells) and receives regular swells of between 3ft-6ft. The winds during these months are very light and variable- so a lot of glassy days!.

However, Papua New Guinea has surfing potential all year-round. On the southern side, 10 minutes out of Port Moresby is Sero Board Riders Club (Taurama Point) where the main barrier reef stretches along the southern seaboard all the way to the Milne Bay Province. You might be surprised to find such challenging and exhilarating breaks! There is thousands of miles of coastlines just waiting to be explored, not to mention breath taking scenery and pristine atolls.

A handful of resorts and boats offer a variety of trip choices, and plenty of new waves still being discovered. The most surfed regions are the north east area of the Papua New Guinea mainland around Vanimo, and the north east islands of the New Ireland and New Hanover areas.

PNG is perfect for surfers wanting to avoid large crowds!
