Surf is on Southern Vanuatu Islands« on: May 06 2006 16:05:00 »
If you really want consistent waves in Vanuatu, head south to the islands of Tanna, Erromango etc. I spent 9 days on Tanna (April 2006) and surfed everyday from 2 ft peelers to scary bowling 8ft. Also photographed 12ft peaks coming in and marching down a big headland. I didn't see another surfer but the local kids were keen to watch. Surfed 10 different waves, all shallow reefbreaks and always off shore. Plus there is beachbreaks where the locals take the odd tourist. Have put info on globalsurfers about waves at Port Resolution in Tanna, but there are plenty more.

Somehow just stumbled onto this post.
I was there last year around March / April. The windswerent always the best but the swell seemed to be quite consistent. Obviously the angle etc.. has to be right as NEw cal blocks it but I got some sickwaves. Pango point is really good (but easily wind effected) Picks up a bit of swell. Breakers was the pick when I was there - Chunky left, lots of fun. For about 4 days in row I scored from 5 foot down to 3 foot. At 5 foot, it turns into a chunky beast!! ask a local bus driver - easy to find

Hey Alex, Vanuatu makes and breaks fortunes..mostly breaks them, those in the know will know where I am coming from..good luck. I found this site only a month ago, happy to see those with knowledge hold their tongue.I lived there for 5 yrs 90 to 95 ..reality is fickle small & on-shore waves, cyclone season is the go, onshore trades most of the year, had joy surfs at Pango in the right conditions and other un-named locations, joy from pristine water and close band of locals v the quality. Sad to see Breaka's resort set up at Pango, hope the village & squatters are taken care of..Thats progress.. here in WA have lost The Farm & soon Smiths to progress. Go / Enjoy / Respect /Protect / - Luck is the key in VU

Ha ashhole!, they're discussing a tropical isle near Nuamotu? Get a freakin' map and you and Tom learn geography and quit makin' up shit- oh yea, Restaurants, near here is not McDump's, dildo-breath!
