Surf tourism and sustainable development in Indo-Pacific islands. I. The industry and the islands



Surf tourism and sustainable development in Indo-Pacific islands. I. The industry and the islands



Journal of Sustainable Tourism 10(5): 405-424



Commercial surf tourism is recent in origin but is now a significant component of the worldwide adventure tourism sector. There are over 10 million surfers worldwide and a third of these are cash-rich, time-poor and hence potential tour clients. Most travelling surfers visit mainland destinations and are not distinguished from other tourists. Specialist surfing boat charters and lodges are most prevalent in Indo-Pacific islands.
