WAVES: TWO OF THE BEST

New Zealand Surfing - - News -

GIZO Fun level 9/10 Crowd Level 10/10

A few min­utes by boat from Gizo town­ship is Pa­longgi, a long, shal­low right that’s well ex­posed to swell. It works best on big­ger swells when the wave’s sec­tions join up and it can get hol­low. Pa­longgi breaks in front of a vil­lage where a hand­ful of friendly lo­cal surfers re­side and have helped set up a beach­side home stay.

For those who like to go left, nearby Ti­tiana’s is a goofy’s par­adise, again a long shal­low ride which when show­ing a bit of size al­lows surfers to loop through sec­tion af­ter sec­tion with an easy pad­dle back. Truth be told Gizo is not the best place for begin­ners – you need to know what you are do­ing.
