Surfing without the crowds

Surfing without the crowds

Marc Levy wants the New Zealand travel trade and their clients to be aware that New Caledonia offers some great surfing – but he doesn’t want too may people to know about it.

 

‘This is uncrowded surf and it’s good quality. The water temperature in winter is 22 to 24 degrees and in summer its 29 – so its always pleasant.’ Levy started Jackaroo Surf Camp about six months ago and operates off Tenia Island on St Vincent’s Pass. He only caters for six surfers at a time and can guarantee no one will ever feel crowded out of a wave.

 

‘Because people get so much surfing they can get tired after a couple of hours. If that happens we can relax on the island and do some swimming with the turtles, or go fishing. We tailor make for the person or group.’ Levy says his groups leave for the island from Port Ouenghi, about 20 kilometres from Noumea’s airport heading north. ‘A lot of people come by self drive, but we can help with transport if necessary.’ Jackaroo.surfcamp@gmail.com
