Cloudbreak: one day there will be many more in this barrel

Cloudbreak, Tavarua, and Restaurants, the best surf spots in Fiji, are going to have their access liberalized to any surfing tourist.

"Free access and use of all surfing areas in Fiji to all tourists and Fijians provide a wonderful opportunity to all Fijians, including the i-taukei landowners in the proximity of these surfing areas to profit directly and indirectly by way of engaging in businesses themselves as opposed to relying on handouts from hotel operators in charging premium rates for their clients," said Mr. Sayed-Khaiyum, the Attorney General.

Mr. Sayed-Khaiyum reiterated that the surfing industry is a global US $10 billion business and the opening up of surfing in Fiji will attract an additional 20,000 tourists to Fiji every year in time to come.

In Tavarua, for example, there's a limit of 36 weekly visitors paying $400/day.

The Fiji Surfing Decree will promote surfing in the country and will attract more surfers to the shores.
