Tupira Mira

Edit Spot

Love it and sure you will too if you can get there!! Definitely has to be on the hit list of all travelling surfers keen to find awesome waves, relax in tropical pacific paradise and love the melanesian hospitality

ALL TIME wave that is sensational. Even when it is small it is super fun. Recommend a fish style board for smaller days and then normal boards as it gets bigger. Watch out for some of the rocks and as it gets bigger, be careful not to go too deep on the inside!!
Check out www.tupirasurfclub.com for a heap more information and photos. It is an excellent destination for a surf trip being an excellent wave with another 7 or 8 options in the area but with plenty of other things to do and a sensational cultural experience. The area is phenomenally picturesqu and the local people, local villages and communities and whole vibe and atmosphere are the best

Additional Info:
Great spot to surf but you MUST contact the Tupira Surf Club or SAPNG before heading to surf there. The Surf Area Management Plan is strictly enforced ensuring that the number of visiting surfers is limited within the Management Agreement - meaning heaps of waves and no crowds!!

Take a fish style board for the smaller days, be careful on the reef, as the size increases, watch you dont end up too far on the inside and too deep bt all time wave that all surfers are sure to fall in love with!!
