This surf camp takes place in Kadavu Island, Fiji. Kadavu Island offers access to several remote world class surfing reef breaks on the Great Astrolabe Barrier Reef that faces the predominant South Easterly swell. There are five nearby passageways through the barrier reef and three of these can offer excellent reef break surfing.
Located around 20 minutes by boat from the resort, this site features left hand breaking waves that can be surfed on almost any wind direction, best on a southeast swell. It can be surfed on both high and medium tide, has an average size of around 4 - 6 feet and up to 10 - 12 feet between June and September. It is generally a predictable break and can be surfed by inexperienced surfers on a small day. Sometimes forms a beautiful barrel.
Located around 10 minutes by boat from the resort, this site has both left and right hand breaking waves. The main break is predominantly left, holding quality waves of up to 12 feet and is all power from top to bottom. It can be surfed at the upper end of an incoming tide and is best on a northerly wind and a southeast swell. Vesi is nick-named ‘The Boardbreaker”.
Depending on its power and size is a thick, steep right-hander. Works best on a southwest swell. This is a good break when the swell direction is not working around the other reef breaks.
In addition to these three passageways, there are several reef breaks outside the barrier reef which offer excellent surfing when the conditions are right. These breaks are virtually unexplored and as yet, have no names.
