Surfboards left behind at the Pohnpei Surf Club.

Ad another 30 board bags on top of that!

There are board bags that have been here for over 7 years! Sorry, we ran out of space. For those who have left boards behind for so many year at the Pohnpei Surf Club we have to start charging an annual storage fee as we pay it as well and we already have a 20 ft container full of surfboard bags. The annual fee for storage is $100 a year and after two years of no payment the surfboards will be donated to the local surf community. Yes, we do take credit cards. For more info or payment please e-mail us at pscsurfclub@yahoo.com

Pohnpei Surf Season coming to an end.

Another month and a half before we call it quits for the surf season but I am sure there will still be a few good moments like this. Last guests leaving in a week so from there on I have no one to surf with. Will probably be sending some invitations soon if I see a decent swell on the forecast.

Winter moments in Pohnpei.

February and early March had a non stop run of good swells and winds.

Dan and Isaac waiting for a set on a small day.

Pohnpei Surf Club daily routine does not get boring.

Another day at Palikir.

This one might scare a few potential guests.

In Pohnpei the beach is the boat.

Another dive spot in Pohnpei. Not that close but worth the journey.

The winds have been calm enough to reach some of the best diving spots in Pohnpei.

Pohnpei February and Early March. EPIC.

On the end of this ride there is a boat with cold coconuts waiting for you.

Lots of perfect windless days.

Winter in Pohnpei and the Sunset from Cupids Bar and Grill.

Winds, weather, smooth seas all came together for the best weeks I have seen in a long time.

Fish are running in Pohnpei. Marlin, sail, mahi, tunas, wahoos….

Pohnpei Daily Life. Come hang out in Paradaise!

There is always a chance we will see some other kind of marine life on the way...

Stand up paddle boards around the ruins are also an awesome option.

The wind has been up with a surf here and there. Between windy surf sessions that was this a really rough fishing tournament with a lot of fish and good results for us.

PCR Hotel is operated by the Akinaga family and is the headquarters for many function for the Pohnpei Japanese community. During the holiday they had a nice party here with a kind of a talent show with music, dance and food. Here is a JICA (kind of a Japanese Peace Corp Volunteer) showing her talents.

January 5th. It has been windy but we just go a few miles past Palikir and we get to the calm side of Pohnpei. There has been mahis everywhere. This was a 5 hours trip dock to dock and dinner for 15, plus fish for all the boat drivers, secretary and housekeeping.

As good as it get surf heading towards Pohnpei from the 19th to the 24th of February.

More of this coming X 2 or 3.

This is “As good as it gets Palikir” conditions coming from a P-Pass expert (my self). This forecast has it all. Size, direction and off shore winds (again, all based on surf forecasts as today, Wednesday Pohnpei time). Weather charts and storms are backing up for all this Surfline forecast is showing. 8 ft + and perfect conditions ahead. Not as big as the December swell but much better winds. As today, 4 guests booked
