yes, it is cooler at sea/night from July to September so bring long pants, windbreaker/light jacket as well as light clothing for the warm tropics.

How long a board should I take?

For smaller surf, your usual shortboard. As swell gets bigger, maybe another 4-6 inches on your usual bigger wave board. e.g. Frigates at 8 feet could tax you on a 7 footer, 7'6" would slot you in there.

How many boards can I bring?

Three shortboards or two longboards is usual, to allow safe deck space. Ask first if you want to bring more.

What is the food like?

All you can eat buffet meals….Breakfast is usually fruit, porridge, eggs/bacon, toast, Lunch on the boat is sandwiches, fruit and snacks. Dinner is a delicious buffet of freshly-caught fish, chicken and lamb curries, fresh salads, sautéed veges, even the traditional Fijian lovo meal cooked in the underground oven. Tea, coffee and Milo are provided 24/7. Beers and wine are paid separately by you on a tab.

How much spare money should I bring?

All transfers, food and accommodation is covered. A few hundred dollars to cover airport tax and any beers/wines and extra food luxuries. Allow more $ if you think you might decide to stay longer elsewhere after your stay with us.

What about first aid?

Guides at the resort are trained to handle minor medical emergencies, however you should bring a first aid kit to look after your own small reef cuts and sunburn.

What insurance do I need?

We strongly recommend you purchase emergency travel insurance from a company such as Travel Safe (888-TVL-SAFE) in the USA, that will pay for and arrange a medical emergency evacuation or hospital care in Fiji should something major happen.

How hot is it in Fiji, how do I handle it? 

Temperatures can be 24'C - 30'C or more during the day, comfortable for most people. Depending on the climate you have arrived from and your skin sensitivity, the sun in the tropics affects us many ways by heat and UV radiation. Having heatstroke or sunburn is no fun. Drink small amounts of water often, maybe a half litre every hour and definitely before and after a surf session. You can get sunburn even on a cloudy day. Use sunscreen especially on the soles of your feet and backs of your legs. Wear a hat for added protection. Wear sunglasses to especially protect from glare on the water.

Are there any biteys in the water?

There is a poisonous type of sea snake that has been seen once on rocks at low tide Frigates. It is instantly recognizable with black and white bands across the body. Contrary to a belief that they move slowly and their small mouths cannot bite you, they can do both but tend to stay away from you if you don't antagonise them. If you see one, stay calm and keep clear. Let it go its own way.

Same with the odd small reef shark. They are harmless and seldom seen near the break as they tend to stay away from breaking waves and sharp coral which can hurt them. Use common sense and get back in the boat if you get cut.
