Muchu Island and Vanimo - My best surf was in Vanimo and in Muchu Island which iff off Wewak. In Vanimo I stayed with a local guy called Solomon, great Dude. To go to Muchu Island I contacted George, a local guy who has a little accommodation business on the island.

add on to my last comment - Despite the short surf season, PNG gets amazing surf and warm water. I've posted a few recent pictures from Tupira, check it out!

surfing PNG - I've lived, worked and surfed PNG for the last 2 years. After reading the comments on this site I have to strongly disagree with a lot of the people commenting.

As I see it, PNG has a short surf season. The surf camps will tell you October to April, in reality its more like November to February, an it won't be pumping everyday.

PNG is a great country for a surfer looking for the ultimate authentic island cultural experience.

If you've never traveled to PNG, your best bet is to book a trip through world surfaris or the perfect wave. Both are relieable surf travel agencies based in Australia.
