When people think about Norfolk Island it is the history that comes to mind over the beautiful beaches and surf breaks. This subtropical island is surrounded by some of the deepest waters in the Pacific Ocean. Being an island of only 5 x 8 kms in size, it is open to swells from all angles with the south been the predominant.
The island has 4 main surf breaks:
Slaughter Bay, Kingston is an exposed reef break that has reasonably consistent surf, although summer tends to be mostly flat.
Anson Bay is a secluded bay, located down a cliff face. Once you have completed the trek, you will find yourself in a beautiful location.
Cemetery Beach located at the end of the historical cemetery in Kingston. Only really an option on the high tide.
Balls Bay located on the South Eastern corner of the island, it is another great spot to try with the right conditions.
Best Surfing conditions for Kingston:
The best time to surf at Kingston is when the South swell combines with an offshore wind direction from the North.
Air New Zealand Conditions for carrying surfboards:
Sporting items less than 2m (78.7") long and weighing up to 23kg count as a standard bag. Otherwise, excess baggage charges apply. The maximum allowed weight is 32kg and the maximum oversize length on jet aircraft is 2.5m (98.4").
