Surfing: Information, Conditions, Equipment & Safety

Posted by Waidroka Bay Resort

For specific Surf Break Information you can download our Surf Break Info and have a look at the extensive surf section on our website.

Ocean Water Temperature– Water temperature reaches a low of 24 degrees Celsius (74 degrees Fahrenheit) around July and August and a high of around 28 degrees Celsius (82 degrees Fahrenheit) in February and March. We surf mostly with just rashguards, or a 0.5mm wind/rashguards and boardshorts.

Safety– whilst surfing, safety is of paramount importance to us for our valued guests. We have experienced surf guides on the boats and in the water on our surf trips. Each boat has a licensed driver, life jackets, first aid and communication equipment to reach the resort at any time. The boat moors nearby each specific surf spot.

Surf Seasons– May through August is the season for bigger surf as the winter swells are usually larger. The wet season from January through April is great for cleaner, but a bit smaller swells (of course there are larger swell patterns here also). The shoulder months of March, April, May and September, October, November can produce a combination of larger swells with clean/glassy conditions.

Crowds – the southern side of Viti Levu, which is where Waidroka is based in general, is totally un-crowded, especially versus the western side of the island, where due to the vicinity of a huge amount of resorts and hotels all breaks have the tendency to get crowded.
