Welcome to Pohnpei, a captivating destination situated in the gorgeous Caroline Islands of Micronesia. Pohnpei is a gem in the Western Pacific and is renowned for its breathtaking beauty. As well as epic waves, Pohnpei stuns visitors with its lush tropical landscapes, majestic waterfalls, thriving coral reefs and rich cultural heritage.
If you’re planning a Pohnpei surf trip, the World Surfaris team can help you organise a surf holiday to remember. Come surf world-class waves and discover the warm hospitality that makes this region one of the best surf destinations in the world.
Surfing Pohnpei should be on every surfer’s bucket list. It’s the most consistent region for surf in the Caroline Islands thanks to its open-facing reefs that capture swells from all directions.
The surf season in Pohnpei runs from October to April, with offshore and side-offshore trade winds offering great conditions even on the windiest days. P-Pass is the biggest drawcard for surfers and it’s one of the world’s best right-handers. It’s best during north, northwesterly and northeasterly swells and is exposed to both the typhoon swells from the west and strong unblocked swells from the north.
P-Pass is one of the most user-friendly reef breaks in Micronesia and can be surfed during any tide without booties. It’s definitely one of the most consistent waves in the area and unlike many other waves in the Pacific region, it can be surfed every day of the week. (On some islands in Micronesia working and surfing on Sundays is prohibited).
