Answers to three previous questions - Fiji is not a good destination for beginners. There is only one area of beachbreak (Sigatoka), and it can be quite challenging. For the most part, boats are needed to access most every other break. In some cases, resorts negotiate usage rights that can keep transient traffic from accessing their waves. Out of the way places without much tourist traffic may be more accessible to the home-stay traveler. Local knowledge will help you along. For an inexpensive resort with access to lefts, i would strongly consider a stay at Batiluva on Yanuca island. It is a beautiful place with daily rides to Frigates. Waidroka is still not a good option as it is somewhat restricting due to tides, the surf is fickle and the resort experience leaves a lot to be desired. Although they market to the budget traveler, they have a bad reputation for charging guests for everything a la carte. You're always digging into your pocket for something at that place.
fiji for beginners - hi there, can anyone tell me if there are any good and save breaks for someone who just started surfing?i would appreciate an answer!thanks
Doing Fiji on the cheap. - Id like to do fiji on the cheap.But is it possible to get boats out to the reefs if your not staying on a resort?I would like to stay in a tent or homestay.Also if i cant do this, which cheap resort should i go to for lefthanders and cheap prices?I want to surf nomotu or frigates like waves.Ive heard bad things about waidroka, and it has a few left hand options, im a goofy and seashell doesnt have many lefts that are worldclass.So any help would be firstname.lastname@example.org
Staying in Fiji - Hey im prb staying in fiji in jan 07 and was wondering is there plenty of beach break as well as reef breaks coz i dont see myself wanting to boat it out everyday for 3 weeks. Are these the only spots in fiji or are there a majority of spots accessible by foot? call me stupid or whatever but i would love some feedbackCheers
MANA SURF - I stayed at Mana for around 7 days to try something different. Mana Lodge runs a boat to waves like Wilkes and there are few completley crap waves in the area that they charge you a bundle to get out to. Anyway when I first got there they said lets go to Wilkes it will be good the tide is coming in. Get there and it is 1ft onshore crapola stuff. Next day same again. Of course you learn. I prepaid for the boat. They cancelled it then charge me for cancelling the prepaid trip. Point. Do not stay at Mana Lodge hoping for an honest crew of people as there are none there. The day Wilkes would have been firing is the day they cancelled the boat. Be warned
Plantation... - I am going to plantation for a trip with the Mrs in Jan. and I am wondering would I be doing solo missions out to the surf and what is the surf like around this time of year?? If anyone knows can ya fill me in, it would be appreciated.Cheers,Tassie Boy..
I've seen that a lot - It seems the crew from Waidroka has a curfew at Friggo's. I've been out there when they wave the flag at 1:00 in the arvo and everyone bails at once. We had it to ourselves for the remainder. Half the crowd gone after lunch.
Yacuna goes off - Stayed in Fiji for 2 weeks but only stayed at Yacuna for 6 days. Mate there is everything to love about this place and Frigates is a top quality wave. Wise and all the gang were exceptional hosts, the food was great and the boat captain Joe was super cool. All the people that were at Yacuna at the time were super cool as well. Thanks Yacuna. As for the other places everyone, seemed to be into where they were staying whether it was Batiluva or another place. I will say one thing and that is the full time hooter went and the surfers from the bay had to go back so they weren't stranded by the tide. The tide dropped the surf picked up and it got so much better.
Waidroka Experience... - We stayed at Waidroka for one week, being 4 surfers in 2 Bures. Surf was great, atmosphere great, food great and the owners where cool. Have no idea what has been going on there, but during our stay it was a place I could only recommend. The best of all our stays in Fiji....
