Surfing in Tahiti
Teahupoo stands out as Tahiti’s most famous wave, earning recognition as one of the planet’s most formidable surf breaks. This one is strictly for experts, and has claimed lives in the past due to its sheer force and size.
Beginners should fear not though, as Tahiti offers a diverse range of wave setups catering to all skill levels, including beginner-friendly beach breaks scattered along the island’s northern coastline. While many breaks in the Society Islands – encompassing Tahiti, Moorea, and Huahine – are accessible by paddling, it’s important to note that the distance of 15-45 minutes necessitates a certain level of surf fitness.
The ideal surfing period in Tahiti is determined by your desired conditions. From November to April, the summer months bring forth favorable north swells along with steady but smaller south swells. However, this period is marked by frequent rain and high temperatures.
Conversely, during the winter months spanning from May to October, substantial south-west swells inundate the island’s southern reef breaks, including the renowned Teahupo’o. This season features cooler and drier weather conditions.
