Anyone stayed at the Royal Sunset Island Resort and been surfing from there? I know it's a boat ride to breaks but how long? Any info on tonga would be great as well!

Boat ride is 1 1\2 long,   the resort service is crappy and not very friendly!

Except for intermittent coups, the islanders show more aloha than all Hawaii; just don't eat the fruit bats! The north islands are better, less crowded, and cleaner water than the main isle.

There are hardly any waves in Tonga. It is fickle as anything, and staying at Ha'atafu is very expensive for what you get. It can get fun but if you are only there for a couple of weeks and you get a clean swell that is over head high you have definitely gotten lucky!
