I went to Vanuatu in Oct 2009. Surfed Pango Point many times. Waves were small for the most part, but had some 2-3 foot days too.
What blew me away was all the local kids surfing on old beaten up and donated boards. They were shredding, even over very shallow coral. Some had perfected riding mini tubes. Kids as young as 5 or 6 were out there in the line up.
I took two boards and ended up donated one of them to a local kid. The look on his face was priceless - he didn't speak English and I didn't speak Bislama so he didn't quite understand what I was doing. When he figured it out though, he was stoked!!
So pretty much in summary:
-Fickle, but has options
-Sharp coral, be prepared to get cut
