Water games and sports are a much loved activity in the island of
Tahiti. The proximity to the sea is a reason for travelers to visit this
island that is surrounded by a lagoon. The weather is conducive for
these activities as Tahiti enjoys a tropical warm and moderate climate.
The variety of waves at sea is ideal for surfing on the smooth waters.
Surfing expeditions are organized for surfing enthusiasts. Surf guides
are able to inform surfers about the best breaks and surf spots in the
area. The water takes off vertically before enfolding into the reefs.
Several meters are traveled before the fall of the wave. There are a few
surf schools on these beaches that coach newcomers and they even rent
out surf boards.
For good surfing it is necessary that the breaks begin at the shore. The
breaks also need to be consistent. The famous surfing spots at Tahiti
are Mata via point and point Venus on the northern coast. There are also
some spots in the southern coast that are rated as Big and small pass.
There are many more upcoming surfing spots in Tahiti. Professional
surfers can select surfing spots on their own. They also would prefer to
stay in yachts to access the best surf. There are yachts that organize
surfing trips and they are well equipped with snorkeling equipments and
radio and TV stations.
Though there are no specific surf camps at Tahiti, resorts organize
transfers by boats or yachts to surf sites. One of the land based lodges
for surfers is the Haapiti surf lodge. It is a great left hand reef
break on the coast of southwest swells. Surfing sites are a short
distance from this lodge.
The pricing and availability of lodges and charter yachts for surfing
are available with resorts. Group surfing expeditions are arranged by
resorts and the group can select the kind of boat they want. Tahiti is a
place where most professional surfers would not miss out on.
