A great spot allthough it is a bit expensive to surf it you have to pay 30 Fiji dollars each time you go and it is only in the morning they go from Seashell; so no evening sessions. I would recommend Plantaion Island
Fiji is a great spot to surf, I love it there warm water and everything dolphins jumping around you and the clearest water you can imagine
There are a lot of other better places to surf in Fiji but this is nice

CAST AWAY ISLAND - I STAYED AT CAST AWAY ISLAND AND STAYED THERE FOR A WEEK GETTING A BOAT TO WILKES WAS EASY TO DO AT THE PLACE WHERE I WAS AT, ANYTIME YOU WANTED TO GO JUST TELL THEM THEN THEY GET A LOCAL TO TAKE YOU THERE. I RIDE A BODYBOARD AND HAVE BEEN FOR 13YRS, I DID'NT MIND THE WAVE AT ALL IT WAS A LONG RIGHT HANDED WAVE THAT RAPPED AROUND THE REEF. YOU NEED TO SURF IT WHEN THE TIDES HAVE STOPPED THEN WILKES SHOWS ITS TRUE FACE. IF GOING THERE ENJOY THIS FUN WAVE, 6FT TO 8FT IS WHEN IT WORKS ANYTHING SMALLER THAN IT JUST CLOSES OUT. BULA BULA...

seadog - Stayed for a week at Funky Fish resort on Malolo island pretty much infront of Wilks and took the boat out over there every day. Couple of times had to go with small Jon's boat (which also serves Plantation island resort), but the boatdriver (Sam) was always 1-2 hours late, once the engine blew apart + once he almost capsised the boat on the surf. So preferred the resorts own boat when ever there was 2 or more guys going from our own resort. F.F. was pretty basic but inexpensive place to stay and close to the break. Had Wilks pumping one morning and one arvo. It was really world class then. But most of the times it was onshore. Easy to check the conditions from up the hill with binoculars and use a mosquito coil to see what the wind is doing ;)

seashell a hoax? - It seems a lot of people imply that seashell resort won't get you in the water. For a solo surfer without a chick coming the dorm price and boat price combo seemed reasonable. If the winds are ideal will they not get a boat out all day, or at least an arvo boat? Be gutted to know it was pumping and you were stuck staring at a lagoon. Should I just stay on mainland and boat out. Also to girlie surfer who posted last, are you sure Fiji is a good destination for you? There may be cheaper sand bottom options closer to you.
