Muadid, mate I fly out on 15th of this month. helped my son who's living in Austria order a new Kneeboard from Chris Diplock in Cornwall for delivery to Scotland. contacted a surf school in Moray shire in Scotland re wetsuits and boards for me, I've had several offers of loans of each.The bisect doesn't go this trip unfortunately; family wedding, so a sneak away plan is in action excuse a father and son reunion and not the island. I had found a perfect left hander last time I was in Scotland that followed the law of fives, it was December... 5ft, offshore winds 5 knots, air temp -5C, water temp 5C and add chill factor and the sleet being smacked against my anorack. Sorry SOS (Siberia's only Surfer) the thought of it bought two lumps to my throat just to get them warmer than where they would have been previously.I will report back on success and will invoke Surfing atlas.com as I goI bend: like an icicle in the wind.

Happy old fart!

Hi Karl again,Hideaway has a good right hander in front of the resort, it is a reef and is dependent on the tides,Sigatoka is a bus ride back to Nadi and Sigatoka river mouth has sand beaches ( a lot kinder to the body) hence the surf camp and surf schools coming there. If you want dormitory basic accommodation you could try Moni Seashell Cove they also have camp ground and stay in units they boat out to the reefs that are not under island restriction. You could try Private Joker's post and check out Mana Island they go to some of the same reefs as Momi. Plantation Island same deal, boat out be prepared to pay and see if you can go with a crew that is a similar skill level as you could find the frothers make it harder for the less skilled .Enjoy and let others know how it unfolds for you.Contrast I'm off to North Scotland, I'll have a brain scan later!smile

Thanks a bunch. I'm going to Fiji for a vacation for two weeks this summer, and was hoping to squeeze some surf in. Any recommendations on spots to go to?

Thanks,Karl

Karl, welcome to the world of surfing and since you are a beginner I wish you all the pleasure i've had over many years.About Fiji, Natandola and Sigatoka are goodish beginner breaks but believe me you need to be really ready to handle anything out on the reefs.I'm a little concerned when I see the website you mentioned.They mention accessing Tavarua and Namotu other resorts can't do that except on Saturday guest turnaround day and no-one exceptthose on Tavarua can surf restaurants and it is definitely not a beginners wave, nor is Cloudbreak.The website is also vague as to where you are staying and that you have to drive to other beaches is concerning and how they break up their services, I hope I'm wrong!If they're the same company whose surf camps you are looking at in California try that first.Talk to some of your reputable American surf travel firms, there are some pretty suss deals as surf teaching schools around the world putting their names in print can be libelous Check your friends, go with word of mouth!good luck have fun

I've been planning on a trip to Fiji. Looked a little at a company called United Surf Camps (http://www.unitedsurfcamps.com). Does anyone have any experience with them?

All the best,Karl

Nice to see you're back PJ, good call on the F one J one spots. Hideaway has its own small right hander tidal stuff! Try Nagigia but investigate thoroughly first it might be King Kong Island but nought to do with Kong himself!I'll clue you to think Vanuatu too that will really open your kids eyes! Sad news Breakas doesn't do kids but since the surf is not exclusive other resorts are just a cheap taxi or bus away!
