As weather goes things are looking good for the western pacific for surf season 2015/16. You must have heard El Nino is strengthening and it’s all starting over us and around Micronesia where a series of powerful typhoons have developed since late spring into summer pushing a lot of warm water to the central pacific. El Nino for us in Pohnpei means light winds and less rain than usual. With all this warm water around combined with cold air coming of Japan we have the perfect fuel for those low pressure systems forming in the western pacific which are the perfect surf generating storms for Pohnpei.
We can’t control the weather but we cantor how we run our show here and in Pohnpei we are doing pretty well at our new location, boats, back up boats, new restaurant and boat gas station. It all just gets better and faster for us to get you to the surf and back safely and in comfort or as good as it will get on the island of Pohnpei.
Our restaurant has just opened late July and it is going through its final fine tuning before it is 100% operational before the surf season.
The hotel still remains with only 7 double rooms and a new airline, Nauruair is now flying in from Brisbane through Fiji, Tarawa, Majuro, Nauro, and Kosrae to Pohnpei once a week. United Airlines is still the only other option from Honolulu, Guam or Cairns.
Flights and rooms are very limited so our advice is to book early to guarantee the best location in Pohnpei and the best deals on flights.
Pohnpei still is a bit more expensive place to flight, meaning less people in the water. For those who pay the price, the rewards awaits you here.
