Papua Nuova Guinea: Secret Garden

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 if we all do the right thing.
Crew involved:
DOP: Shane Peel from My House Pictures
Drone filmer: Glen Glaydon,
Surfers: Felicity Palmateer, Andy Mooney, and friends
Direction/Edit: Gra Murdoch & Shane Peel
Anything else:
It’s definitely best watched in HD if you’ve got half decent internet, and using headphones if you can, as the song (by Rebecca Barnard) is great!

White Horses is an Australian surf mag that’s often compared to The Surfers’ Journal. Their debut clip is about Papua New Guinea’s Surf Management Plan.
