Guam is Good -- 5/96
Located on the southern end of the Marianas archipelago, Guam is exposed to the many typhoons that cross the western Pacific. Most of the good surf breaks on the outer reefs. However, there are a few places that I tried, that have fairly easy access.

It was only two feet... could you imagin it at ten?
About Guam. Guam is a territory of the United States--no passport is necessary, but I would bring one just in case. Electric power brownouts was quite regular due to a huge increase in usage. Tumon Bay is like a little Waikiki. There are lots of surf shops, more like boutique stores. The diving is absolutely incredible--bring your mask/snorkel/fins. The best chance to score swell is during hurricane season between June and December.
Thanks to Norman Taruc of Guam who helped me out while I was out there.
