Try the break off the little Island Western side of Simberi - Having been working on the Island and checking out the surf everyday even through I had no board. The best surf I saw was at the little Island on Western side of Simberi. Saying that 5 surfers turned on a boat one day surf the left handed at the port of the Simberi Gold Mine.

- Just got back from 9 night charter. Although we surfed everyday, it was very small and very inco. Aparently it does get good but I doubt it has the cosistency of Indo. Bit of a risk if you only have 1-2 weeks.

Ummm, if can afforn the time and expense!! - Yes and No. I have spent a fair amount of time up there looking. Only go if you have plenty of time. I don't want to sound like a downer, but sometimes it's better to stick with what is know when it comes to scoring good, consistant surf when you only have a month or three a year to do so!!. If you know what I mean.
