The surf resort PSC (Pohnpei Surf Club) have a number of boats and while they will guarantee getting their guests to the break they can usually handle others staying elsewhere.
super fun high performance wave when 3-5ft when it gets 6ft+ barrel city. but if it smaller and the swell has more west in it will still get hollow.
Fickle, sometimes windy.
Watch the winter storms in the North Pacific to work out when the swell will hit.
Continental Micronesia Airline only airline going in to Pohnpei.
PSC are best able to let you know about other passes in the area.
