I surfed Malaita in 1991 at Malu,u ...nice left comming into deep harbour mouth...this wave works in summer on North swells ...we caught the ferry to Auki and then Hitced the 65 klms up the coast on a big work truck to Malu'u...stayed in a house with some local family who used to run a guest house...they were happy to rent us a room even though the guest house was no longer operating.Popular wave with surfers from visiting yachts staying in harbour....seems to have been surfed first about 1971 by Tony Dempsey from Q.L.D ...from old visitors book at the old guest house.Close by on "no -surf "days we snorkled on crashed japanese zero --2-3 meteres deep in lagoon and, swam at the local waterfalls .No tourists up here...people very friendly

Solomons has the best surf on the planet. Malaita, Ysabel get up to about 8 ft perfect barrels during November to April. Check out surfthesolomons website for trips as well as surftheearth. Gizo rips during winter but can be more fickle - when we surfed there with Benji Weatherley, Brett Dorrington and Shaun Harrington it was a solid four foot. O'Neill's Rob Bain and his son have just come back from surfing Malaita and scored big time. There are no crowds - great waves and great people.
