Surf Resorts in Oceania

Oceania has some excellent surf spots across the Pacific in Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and the rest of Polynesia.  

Australia with its miles and miles of coastline is world renowned as a big surf destination in the world and has a wide range of beach and point breaks. Summer and the Fall are best months to surf in New South Wales with Freshwater Beach being a regular host of major championship events. The Gold Coast in Queensland is another mecca spot and attracts thousands of surfers every year with its warm temperate climate and warm waters. The legendary Bells Beach near Torquay hosts a number of ASP World Tour Events every year. 

 

New Zealand with its long slender coastlines makes accessing both sides of the coast easy and a short drive. The best regions to surf here are on the west coast of Auckland down to Hamilton with Raglan being a popular break with locals. Going further down to Taranaki you will find some great beach breaks with large waves. Around the bottom of the North Island, there are some excellent hidden breaks in the Wellington and Wairarapa regions with great waves found at Lyall Bay and Castlepoint. Down in the South Island of the country, there are some big breaks at the Catlins near Dunedin and Westport on the rugged and sometimes dangerous west coastline of the South Island. 

 

The Pacific Island nations complete this impressive list of surf spots in the region. There are plenty of quality reef breaks around here and world class spots only accessible by boat. Fiji, particularly Tavarua, is always on the top 10 list of world class surfers with quality breaks like Restaurants and Cloudbreak producing massive left hand barrels and are a sight to see let alone surf. Tahiti is home of the famous Teahupoo which is best suited only for expert surfers with its thunderous wave that breaks with more power, volume and force than other wave in the world. There are also some other excellent breaks on the number of islands in this region that produce year round consistent barreling waves.
