Is there surfing allowed on sunday's?

« on: October 31 2005 09:10:00 »

ive heard sundays strictly a day of rest but is that only for the locals and can tourists get away with going for a surf? Im going out there to work a bit and might only be able to surf at the weekends so it matters a little more than a normal holiday

Continued from above post:
Visiting surfers have been surfing on Sunday in Tonga for years and there has never been anyone prosecuted. It's a good idea, for everyone's sakes, to excercise discretion by keeping a low profile and not parading through villages with surfboards under arm on Sundays. If everyone does the right thing there shouldn't be any dramas. If unsure ask the local surfers.

If you don't feel comfortable surfing on a Sunday and Don't really feel like just sitting around, head out to a little island off Nuku'alofa called Pangaimotu, it caters for western tourists on Sunday, has nice beaches, good food, even organised activities like beach volleyball. It was a couple of years ago now that I was there so just assuming it still happens.
Cheers and Good Luck
