What is the story with the guys over at Waidroka? I have been hearing plenty things about them hardly going out for surf, and that people have been having problems with them? Could you shed some light on thise? I ehar that they are only allowed to surf 2-3 spots, since they have been having conflicts with other groups. Aloha

Were did you hear that? I haven't heard anything like that before?

The only reason to go to Waidroka is to surf Frigates. The other spots are only so-so, and considering how friggin remote and depressing (think lots of mud, no beach, no water at low tide), if they can't access Frigates anymore, then you're better off at Seashell or Sigatoka. Or Tavarua if you're spanking rich. The people that run Waidroka are divers, from Arizona no less. They are not surfers.

The problem in Fiji is that the Chiefly landowners also own the reefs, so unless the guys running the operation have permission to surf at spots other than those mentioned, they are not permitted to bring guest to other spots (e.g., you need to stay at Tavarua to surf Cloudbreak).
Sounds like the operation you are talking about doesn't have permission to surf many other spots.
