SURFING TOURS
Surfers have known of this place for many years of its great atmosphere and great surf breaks. Gizo has a number of great surf locations all only accessible by boat from Fatboys, all western province surf breaks, break on coral reef. Such breaks include: Pailongge & Titiana - both can be easily reached with a short paddle from the village on Gizo island, Pailongge - a long right-hander that picks up a lot of swells and breaks in front of a village. It has 2 sections that join and become perfect on large swells, Titiana - 800 metres south and is a strong left-hander, Skull Island - a 2 hour boat ride from Gizo & Zipolo Habu Resort. It's possibly the longest right-hander in the Solomons. Needs a medium to large swell, best at 3-6 foot, the wave starts breaking about 200 metres south of Skull Island.

Kennedy Island

KENNEDY ISLAND
Kennedy Island is a small uninhabited island in the Solomon Islands that was named after John F Kennedy, following an incident involving Kennedy during his World War II naval career. Kennedy Island lies 5 minutes by boat from Fatboys resort. In August 1943, it was to this island that the crew of the PT 109, commanded by then Lieutenant Kennedy, swam after their boat was rammed and wrecked by the Japanese destroyer, Amagiri. Two American sailors died in the incident. Kennedy later had the crew swim to the larger Olasana Island.
