Pohnpei, Micronesia has some of the best waves in the world. Here, you can expect warm, crystal clear water with perfect powerful waves. Waves break far from the beach just like Tahiti or Fiji. To check the surf from the shore is not possible so the best possible way to get to the waves is by boat. Most of the swells that reach Pohnpei are generated by North Pacific winter storms and from typhoons in the Western Pacific. Pohnpei surf season goes from early October thru early May. Up to four feet, the waves on Pohnpei are user-friendly. The most surfed area of Pohnpei is Palikir Pass (P-Pass), on the northwest side of the island. This is a full barrel, down-the-line wave. Main Pass is the second most surfed wave on the northwest side of Pohnpei. The east side of Pohnpei has some beautiful waves as well and to score some good waves, you will need all the knowledge of surf guides. If you like challenging yourself and surfing big waves, go for surfing in Pohnpei. But remember Pohnpei’s reefs are always shallow on the inside; it is safe to use booties that can be very helpful at times. Surf smart and safe!
