Sustainable Surfing in Papua New Guinea with Felicity Palmateer
While some exotic surf zones around the world are starting to struggle to manage crowds, tempers and expectations, Papua New Guinea has a ‘Surf Management Plan’ that appears to be working really well. White Horses Magazine was intrigued by the idea that the rest of the surfing world could learn something important from this small island nation.
This clip broadly sketches out the Surf Management Plan, and shows how it’s possible for Surf Tourism to be sustainable, and how everyone can benefit locals, visitors and the environment. Follow Billabong Women’s Felicity Palmateer as she enjoys the waters north of Australia with White Horses Magazine to learn more about sustainable surfing. DOP: Shane Peel from My House Pictures.
