WORLD CLASS WAVES
Kavieng is located just a couple of degrees south of the equator. During the northern hemisphere monsoon, the north coast and the string of islands leading to the west enjoy uninterrupted North Pacific ocean swells. This makes for a generally consistent surf season for the region running from November through to April each year.
The nature of the waves are typically 2-4ft over reef at varying levels of difficulty. Most of the reefs will handle larger swells of up to 6-8ft, with lefts and rights, some challenging and others more forgiving. There is a reasonable selection of waves in relatively close proximity and all located within the Kavieng Surf Management Area.
The Retreat has the necessary transport and local knowledge to take advantage of the best times and conditions.

Surf Management Plan
In an effort to promote sustainable development of this growing sport, the Kavieng Surf Club (KSC) manage and oversee the Kavieng Area Surf Management Plan. Essentially, the management plan is a surf quota system which limits the number of visiting surfers to 20 per day. This limit is for the whole Kavieng area, regardless of where the surfers stay, with prescribed base fees generated and dispersed within the resident communities adjacent the surfing resources.
