well guys ive been, and am back. surf was ok, but there are loads of better places to surf in this world. got 2-3 ft most of time, onshore trades by 9. its fickle, and the locals said the last good day was 5 weeks before i got there.! its a beautiful country, and if u wanna chill out with your girl, and get waves as a bonus, then its the goods, otherwise stick to indo.

why dont you put on the front of the papers.people are lookin for other places than indo, and you go blabin! you forget to mention its a real short ride, a 1 peak takeoff, and with a dozen brazil nuts in the lineup, its gameover!

i agree, i went over for 2 weeks, got a few good surfs, but its badly wind affected, and its blowin by 930. there are also a few locals that rip the place up, and have it wired, so you gotta show respect. and you gotta have the place sussed or your surfin the one wave the whole time, and its only a 50m ride over live shallow coral. theres a surf travel company seelin packages, and there not overly promoting the surf side of things, more the romantic holiday with surf as bonus. sure the place can have its day, but so does your local. as a country, its insane, as surf destination, go to indo or fiji

Pipeman - pls tell more. I am have booked a holiday for 2 weeks end Mach 06 with wife & kids. Staying on the lagoon not for from Pango. Have done a fair bit of research, showing plenty negatives & plenty positives for surf. My research summary as follows (pls correct as needed) ;
- surf early before onshore (ie out by 9.30am), just like home
- surf size will be arounf 2-3ft, 4ft if lucky
- reef booties essentail
- crowds will be low
PS - I am thinking about taking a mates longboard as backup. Saw some photos on the internet of Pango at 2ft, looked like real fun if nothing else was on.

hey anon, take it you have surfed there a couple of times. met some brazilian lads that live there. i found it a little frustrating with the conditions,was onlythere for ashort time.lots of talk about the pango area, any idea about the sw,w side of the island does it get a little swell?protected?,is it accsessible?

The westside of the island is protected by the S-SE tradewinds that affect the majority of the spots on the island. Though even though its protected, there is no swell that hits that side of the island really, only big W/NW swells which hardly ever happen, maybe in a cyclone.
