Surfing PNG on a brink of Success

by Shane Saroya – EM TV Sports, Port Moresby

The Surfing Association Papua New Guinea (SAPNG) is focused on taking surfing in Papua New Guinea to another level in terms of developing the code, and using it as the ideal tool for tourism development in the country. 

In the eyes of the modern world, many still consider PNG to be relatively ancient by virtue of contrasting landscapes, its people and traditional customs.

With regard to Surfing in PNG, the SAPNG is working to surpass current expectations and are at the cutting edge with a new world approach to ensuring an equitable and sustainable foundation for the sport in the country.

Surfing resources are developed and managed for the collective benefit of traditional resource custodians, along with SAPNG affiliated surf clubs and commercial operators.

Working together, the SAPNG with the surf industry, tourism operators and traditional reef custodians have developed a unique and truly memorable PNG surfing experience.

And most notable, are the surfing spots around the country such as the Curlies, Rubio in New Ireland Province, Ulingan Bay in Madang and Lido in Sandaun province.

The vast majority of PNG’s land ownership is under traditional customary clans.

For coastal communities, this extends to traditional and custodial rights all the way out to the reef fringes.
