This region is still a relatively new frontier with new breaks being discovered every season. Tupira Surf Club manager, Nicki Wynnychuk is a mad keen explorer and can sniff out a wave in any nook and cranny. The contour of this coast means it hosts and abundance of set up’s from the classic Tupira point to hollow intense slabs. The first north swells start to roll in around early October and consistently occur until April. During a 1 week stay at Tupira you will surf your brains out and get a good variety of waves. Having the right directly out front is a major bonus and means you are constantly excited about surfing during your holiday.
A brief description of some of the known breaks in the region as follows.
Tupira right: This super fun wave is directly out front of the camp and is the most consistent wave in the region due to it being a north swell magnet. There is rarely an unrideable day over the October to April period. You can cruise on this wave on your longboard or push your limit and take off deep and get barrelled directly off the take off.
Medebur: A fun right hander within 10 mins from Tupira and often a crowd of locals will gather to cheer you on.
Mereman, Sakula left: A great little slab that offers some exciting barrels
Mereman right: Handles 3ft plus but better with a more northerly swell and good for longboards
Simbini left: Compared to a mini Padang Padang with plenty of barrels on offer.
Patakai: right hander but better on big swell
Suaru: incredible location with a fast right on the north side of the village and a classic outer reef left. (see shot of left with volcano in background)
