Fiji has great waves and lovely warm water. It has a variety of world class reef breaks and is very consistent throughout the year.
The main source of swell comes out of the Tasman Sea and although surfable all year round the best time for surfing in Fiji is from March to November where the south swells from the deep south pound the Fijian breaks. Waves this time of year can be anything up to 5 meters so there are waves for the serious surfer.
The waves are smaller in the rainy season which runs from December to February.
