Norfolk Island is most known for its rich history, picturesque landscape and stunning sapphire coloured ocean.  A subtropical Island, with a tapestry of forests, gardens and rolling pine-dotted meadows, Norfolk Island is surrounded by some of the deepest and most beautiful waters in the Pacific Ocean.   With its rugged coastline pounded by heavy swells, this sub-tropical island has had its own Board riders club for some time, keeping the reef breaks all to themselves (no crowds here) The secret is now out and the island is  becoming increasingly popular with overseas surfers.

Norfolk is open to swell from all angles with the predominant being from the south. The west, east and southern sides all have good breaks, with swells rolling in over the island’s volcanic rock and coral reefs. Slaughter Bay located in Kingston, the World Heritage site has the most consistent reef break offering up barrelling lefts and peaks. This reef is where the Flagship of the First Fleet, HMS Sirius was wrecked in 1790. Other reef breaks worth checking out are Cemetery Beach and Ball Bay or walk the winding track down the hill to Anson Bay for a beach break.

There are also secluded spots around the island, which can offer big waves and reef bombies, these areas are quite difficult to get to, quite often scrabbling down a cliff and it is highly recommended you go with a local surf guide.
