 New Caledonia

Australia & Pacific

Better known for diving, New Caledonia has a great surf potential. But you need a boat: only one spot is on the mainland. The others are far (more than 5km...) all along the barrier reef. Many passes have a surf potential, but swells are not very consistent.

The locals are all super cool even at the best spots and are more likely to hoot you in to one than to kick your ass. The crowds are very thin and mellow even if you dont speak French they'll be cool.
