You will find Pohnpei in the Federated States of Micronesia, one of three Senyavin Islands within the Caroline Island chain. It can fire for weeks on end and was first surfed by only a handful from the ’60s into the ’90s. Fast forward to the late ’90s and the secret’s unleased with the first surf camp opening in 2004—Pohnpei is no longer a secret.
