Welcome to Autumn – surfers’ season!
The water’s warm, and the morning breeze starts tending offshore.
Did you manage to score some green-room time courtesy of tropical cyclone Winston? Wow! Yes, it sure did deliver, but whoa, the crowds were outta control.
Next opportunity: Easter.
Easter has got to be one of the best times of the year to get away on a surf holiday.
But come Easter break, I really am not in the mood to surf with crowds, and Easter in many parts of Australia and NZ can be super crowded.
Both the Indian and Pacific Ocean are awakening at this special time of the year and the water is warmer again.
Thanks to a number of public holidays, a carefully-chosen 10-day travel period could only cost you 4 days of annual leave, which is a great bonus too.
Here’s our Top-3 options to score an excellent Easter surf holiday:
1. The Maldives
starts delivering late in March/early April. Both the Southern Atolls and Male Atolls are well worth a visit, and crowds are mellow early season. The winds are generally light, and we also offer you some serious savings in 2016.
The Mentawai and, indeed, much of Indo is fun and generally uncrowded during early season. Yes, it is true it may not be 10ft and pumping, but there should be plenty fun 3-5ft days with no major crowd grief.
3. The Pacific
You couldn’t have missed how consistent and challenging a season it has been on the north shore of Hawaii. Well, late March and Early April tend to be smaller, cleaner and way less crowded, so Hawaii is a great Easter option.
It has been a great El Nino season so far and the PNG Explorer’s Chris Peel said, “There is a kind of lag on the Kelvin wave/upwelling that could see the El-Nino-related weather events stretch right through to June, so our fingers are crossed. Crowds are never an issue.” Of course there’s Samoa, Fiji and even P- Pass as well as many more options too.
Easter is indeed a great (and very affordable) time to get away on a surf holiday. Whether you want to discover any of the above 3 or perhaps pop over to Bali, or other options, enquire today and we’ll get you and the family some quality waves and relaxation time away from crazy crowds during Easter.
