All of the region has fantastic surf, totally uncrowded with warm tropical water.
Kavieng, Rabaul, Simberi Island, Big Tabar, Lihir, Manus Islands, the possibilities are endless.
It's a new frontier.
Travel is difficult, I have been lucky enough to work in the region and get to surf places that have NEVER been surfed before.

Try the break off the little Island Western side of Simberi - Having been working on the Island and checking out the surf everyday even through I had no board. The best surf I saw was at the little Island on Western side of Simberi. Saying that 5 surfers turned on a boat one day surf the left handed at the port of the Simberi Gold Mine.

- Just got back from 9 night charter. Although we surfed everyday, it was very small and very inco. Aparently it does get good but I doubt it has the cosistency of Indo. Bit of a risk if you only have 1-2 weeks.

Ummm, if can afforn the time and expense!! - Yes and No. I have spent a fair amount of time up there looking. Only go if you have plenty of time. I don't want to sound like a downer, but sometimes it's better to stick with what is know when it comes to scoring good, consistant surf when you only have a month or three a year to do so!!. If you know what I mean.
