CAST AWAY ISLAND - I STAYED AT CAST AWAY ISLAND AND STAYED THERE FOR A WEEK GETTING A BOAT TO WILKES WAS EASY TO DO AT THE PLACE WHERE I WAS AT, ANYTIME YOU WANTED TO GO JUST TELL THEM THEN THEY GET A LOCAL TO TAKE YOU THERE. I RIDE A BODYBOARD AND HAVE BEEN FOR 13YRS, I DID'NT MIND THE WAVE AT ALL IT WAS A LONG RIGHT HANDED WAVE THAT RAPPED AROUND THE REEF. YOU NEED TO SURF IT WHEN THE TIDES HAVE STOPPED THEN WILKES SHOWS ITS TRUE FACE. IF GOING THERE ENJOY THIS FUN WAVE, 6FT TO 8FT IS WHEN IT WORKS ANYTHING SMALLER THAN IT JUST CLOSES OUT. BULA BULA...
seadog - Stayed for a week at Funky Fish resort on Malolo island pretty much infront of Wilks and took the boat out over there every day. Couple of times had to go with small Jon's boat (which also serves Plantation island resort), but the boatdriver (Sam) was always 1-2 hours late, once the engine blew apart + once he almost capsised the boat on the surf. So preferred the resorts own boat when ever there was 2 or more guys going from our own resort. F.F. was pretty basic but inexpensive place to stay and close to the break. Had Wilks pumping one morning and one arvo. It was really world class then. But most of the times it was onshore. Easy to check the conditions from up the hill with binoculars and use a mosquito coil to see what the wind is doing ;)
seashell a hoax? - It seems a lot of people imply that seashell resort won't get you in the water. For a solo surfer without a chick coming the dorm price and boat price combo seemed reasonable. If the winds are ideal will they not get a boat out all day, or at least an arvo boat? Be gutted to know it was pumping and you were stuck staring at a lagoon. Should I just stay on mainland and boat out. Also to girlie surfer who posted last, are you sure Fiji is a good destination for you? There may be cheaper sand bottom options closer to you.
tell me more about surfing at wilkes - going in October 09. what board should i take? I prefer a mini mal, or 7 ft short board, and 3-4 ft gentle conditions. Ive been surfing 10 yrs, but still feel inexperienced, and get scared when its over 5 ft- am I going to feel safe surfing there?. Ive head you need booties for the reef- what about long wetsuit? is it too hot for wetsuits? please talk to me. From little Girly
- i went to fiji last september, stayed at musket cove which is about 5min walk from plantation and it is a bit more up-market, Suji took me out every morning for a quick surf at namotu lefts then a few hours at wilkes, great fun
Board?? - ill be traveling over to fiji this year in july.. Never surfed coral/Reef before and ill be staying at Plantation Island. What board would some1 recommend??
Great fun - Had two mornings surfing wilkes back in October, which were great fun. I was a bit nervous having never surfed an ocean reef before but once in the water that soon changed. Not too shallow which is good, a few different sections to chose from depending on your ability, don't forget your booties. Stayed at Rendezvous surf and dive, good location, 10mins from surf and v.friendly staff
Unknown - Really great page ! Thanks!
Nadi Surf - This is a playful wave and not intense at all. I do not recommend seashell cove. The new owners (Indians and Chinese) have no idea. The managers (Indians) have no respect for the Fijian staff and this place will be out of business if they keep hiring incompetent managers. You can stay anywhere in the Nth West and just get Ian Muller from Nadi surf to get you out to the reefs on his boat. E-mail Ian, he will let you know where the best accom is.
fun spot - this wave gets bowly - kinda reminded me of sunset in hawaii - some waves would break all the way around the reef and you could just hack it for a while others would be a sick drop and not much more. If staying at seashell get as many waves here as you can because you wont be surfing much otherwise.
