Looks like a great weekend shaping up in Brinetopia - strong winds generating 3M swell. Plus this little gem from Fiji Times Online (via Museum of Surf) about Fiji opening up it's surf spots for all to use!
"TOURIST and local surfers can, from Friday July 9 this year, access and use any surfi-ng area in Fiji without havi-ng to pay or obtain permit or approval from any person. The decree aims to encourage and promote Fiji as a premier surfing destination, promote surfing as a sport, maximise development and training of local talented surfers, and also for locals to engage more profitably in the surfing industry.
Head of the tourism ministry Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum said the decree had been gazetted following Cabinet's approval on June 30, and it prohibited any exclusive use of any surfing area by any person. "Any person who obstructs or prevents any person from accessing or using any surfing area for surfing or for any water sport, shall be guilty of an offence and liable to a fine and or imprisonment," Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said"
