A really sad news for anyone who has been there. The Village Hotel will be soon closing its doors. A Pohnpei landmark, tourist attraction, great service, food and bar, not to mention the view. Thank you for the Arthurs and all their staff for years taking care of us. You will be very missed! I my self will never forget the location, the crew who ran it and the good memories. Thanks again.

Late Season for Surfing in Pohnpei Micronesia.
The month of March and April (late season) had good to epic surf during the past years.
Just check our Captains Log ( http://www.pohnpeisurfclub.com/captains_log/ ) or our Best Month to Come ( http://www.pohnpeisurfclub.com/gal_feb-april.htm ) to see how the surf was during that time of the year in past seasons. As today the Pohnpei Surf Club is almost empty after March first and looking at very uncrowded conditions. Our travel agents have got the best rates to fly from Pohnpei from Cairns, Australia, Hawaii or the mainland USA. Add the best airfare to great late season discounts to stay with us.

For the last month the winds were on the strong side but as we approached mid February winds have dropped a notch and swells are still marching down to Pohnpei. Not only the biggest and most perfect day ever witnessed on the island was in March not to mention empty and perfect line ups until around late April.
Here are some pictures of Mid February at Palikir Pass, Pohnpei, Micronesia.
A day ago I posted a note about late season and how good t can get. Just one day later we got a 10 of of 10 day. Here are some pictures.
This was the time I came to Pohnpei year after year before I opened the camp. February 28th was the chosen day to depart Hawaii every year. This time we arrived on a big swell. Next day it dropped and was absolutely perfection. On this picture myself and Akos, my Hungarian friend paddling out and his brother Bence shooting from the boat. Early and late season are still my favorite times of the year to surf in Pohnpei. There is usually no one here before November and most leave by early March. The same late period (March and April) has seen some of the biggest and best surf I have ever experienced in Pohnpei. I really look forward to that time of the year which at times I had to e-mail friends just so I could have someone to surf with before we finish the season, dry dock the boats and start getting ready for the next one. No hurry during the flat periods. There is always that perfect day on the end of this road.
Here is a picture of our guest and friend Sylvi Bodi. Not only a great surfer but also a lot of other beauty titles under her belt. Miss Hungary, Playmate, FHM covers and many more.
