enjoy your stay and watch out for the "kava" and "Taki system" mate

Hi Gary. Just got back from plantation. Heres the deal with the surf - Johnny or Manasa will ferry you to Wilkes reef for $40. This is pretty much all you can surf, There is a lot of politics going on with these reefs. The trip takes 20 - 30 minutes in the boat. Cloudbreaks can only be surfed from plantation on saturdays but very limited spots. I surfed Wilkes at about 6-8 ft and perfect but it is unpredictable and bad cuts when caught inside. I was lucky to hook up with a guy named Suji who operates from Musket cove around the corner. He pulled some strings and got 2 of us out at Namotu lefts, on the other side of the channel from Wilkes. 4-6 ft and perfect. This is a much easier, flowing wave to ride and not too nasty reef-wise.
