Some outer reefs get good in the summer and the mainland breaks are short and average. Not really worth the expense to get there and hang around waiting. I waited for four weeks.

Yeah, ET's (offshore summer reef) is the only wave worth the expense and it is very fickle. It's on a small reef exposed to the regular winds and gets blown out easily. As soon as the swell pops up a bit almost invariably so does the wind.
When it is good (or even when it's not) there are around six boatloads wanting to hit it.

Have you been to Ha'atafu Beach and the resort there?  How was the surf and is there any worth accessing without a boat?

Simon spent a few weeks in Tonga back june the place has definate potential unfortunately for me struck a flat spell not just in Tonga but the entire sth pacific, Don't think it matters where you go in the world peak season or not you can encounter this. Plenty of other things to do if you go remember your fishing gear great way to fill in a flat day and oh yeah believe ET's is an epic wave jan , feb are probably the better mths

I went to Haatafu beach resort for a surf trip in Sept this year. We didnt get much of a surf for 9 days and when there is no surf in tonga there is definitely no surf. they have a limited swell window and if the surf doesnt come from a certain direction eg South swell there be prepared for a lazy day of nothing to do - tonga isnt set up for tourists and it can be difficult to go places and do things mainly because their isnt much else to do.
you will be fed well at Haatafu beach resort and its right in front of the breaks but the lefts are short and its very shallow and while I was there 3 boards were dinged
