The Vanuatu Surfing Association and Solwota Sista are in Tanna!


The horn buzzed kicking off the very first Tommy Tanna surf competition and a whale jumped out of the water!! We have descended on Yenkateli, Whitesands Tanna with clean glassy waves forecasted for the two days of competition attracting surfers from all over the whitesands area. The Vanuatu Surfing Association is offering judging and competition management support for the Tommy Tanna surf club’s very first independently organised surf comp.


We have been based in the area since last weekend providing surf training, judging courses, board repair and maintenance sessions as well as board drive runs to surrounding villages. Our Solwata Sistas have also been working with the girls and women of the area to introduce surfing and have been talking about sanitary health having partnered up with Mamma’s Laef – Vanuatu – #washablesanitarypads to distribute their products. Huge shout out to our sponsors Law Partners, Pacific Advisory , Azure Pure Water , Dynamic Supply Company Vanuatu and Air Vanuatu.
