SURF FEES

NASA fee: AU$15 per surf day per surfer (9 days on 10-night charters) = Total AU$135 per surfer.
SAPNG fee: AU$50 per surfer (once off fee per surf season).

NASA recognizes that the communities who live in areas close or adjacent to surf breaks are custodians of the marine environment.

Under PNGs unique surf management plan system, NASA collects a levy from visiting surfers which is then dispersed between the resident communities and NASA.

NASA uses the fees for local area surfing development programs, including but not limited to member equipment needs, national and international competition participation, training programs and club facilities.

Fees payable are AU$15 per surfer per day payable to NASA. In addition to the NASA Fees, there is a once only Surfing Association of Papua New Guinea (SAPNG) levy of AU$50 per visiting surfer to New Ireland. PNG Surfaris is an endorsed corporate member of NASA and SAPNG. To understand more about PNG’s world leading Surf Management Plan, visit www.sapng.com.
