 New Caledonia

Australia & Pacific

Better known for diving, New Caledonia has a great surf potential. But you need a boat: only one spot is on the mainland. The others are far (more than 5km...) all along the barrier reef. Many passes have a surf potential, but swells are not very consistent.

The locals are all super cool even at the best spots and are more likely to hoot you in to one than to kick your ass. The crowds are very thin and mellow even if you dont speak French they'll be cool.

Currency: Comptoirs Francais du Pacifique franc (XPF)
Population: 221,943 (July 2007 est.)

Capital: Noumea

If you are looking for something alternative to play store that contain all banned and mod apps and games then AC Market is the best choice. Because since this app is pretty much like play store you can use it easily and you won't find any difficulty in using this app. This app is faster and stable.
Filelinked, for those who don't know, is an easy way to install applications on your Android device. As the Nvidia SHield is becoming more and more popular I thought I would share a quick and easy guide on installing FileLinked on your Shield. Once Filelinked is installed you will need codes to install any application you may be interested and you will see guides for them start appearing on my site so keep an eye out for them as I will be adding them regularly from now on.
