We are in the center of the two most consistent surfing seasons on earth. You will find our unique locations thriving with beauty, pleasant culture and great waves. Your next surf getaway begins here.

There are over 5 surf breaks at Papara. Ranging from simple beach break to world class reef passes. Each of the spots can be seen from anywhere on the beach and can all be firing at the same time. The main peak is at the river mouth over smooth stones offering rights and lefts with many take off positions. Papara is the most consistent surf spot in Tahiti and well under looked. Everyone always is worried to surf Teahupoo. Fortunately there are surf breaks for the rest of us. Be prepared to surf more than your body may be able to handle. Oh yea, and if your ready for Teahupoo, she is only 30 minutes down the road.
