Wave Surfing in Manokwari

The coast of Manokwari regency is a great place for travelers who want to enjoy surfing. There are several surfing spots in the east, north and south of the regency. During the West Monsoon (December to March), strong winds hit the north coast of Manokwari creating tunnel waves in the mornings. For beginning wave-surfers, the recommended place is Pinto Angin (the gate of the winds) - according to John Callahan. The right spelling should be Pintu Angin (wind gate). Please, watch the following videos which show how boys stand on their surfboards 'playing with the waves.'
