Surfing Kiritimati (Christmas) Island


Does it get any better than this?A very nice right

Kiritimati is host to a golden five kilometer stretch of points, reefs and channels between London village and Paris point. This stretch is reputed to have 24 surfable waves - with surf season October through to March. The swell hits Kiritimati about a day or two after it hits Hawaii - a 8' to 12' swell at Sunset Beach in Hawaii will result in 6' to 10' clean faces in Kiritimati one to two days later. Of the 24 breaks, two third are user friendly with deep channels and sand of soft reef bottom. The other third is has rough coral bottoms and are for experienced surfers only.
