The Vanuatu Surfing Association (VSA) will be hosting its third annual Leimalo Surf Festival in the wave rich region of Pango Village, Vanuatu.

Named after Leimalo, the local female deity who is said to bless surfers with good waves, the festival is turning into one of the biggest gatherings of indigenous surfing tribes and offers one of the highest prize purses in the Pacific. Located in the uncrowded pristine waters along Pango bay, just 5 minutes drive from Port Vila, the event showcases local as well as regional and international talents celebrating surfing and culture.
