 Additional Information

This left has 2 sections. The first one breaks in front of a swimming pool. It's tubular and fast. It works with a consistent swell and should be reserved to experimented surfers. The second section works with smaller swells (starts at 3ft). It's easier to surf. Be careful at the take-off: you should have an eye on a submerged rock. The final close-out isn't dangerous. Check also the north of the creek by big swell: you may find a good right.

Atmosphere

This is a beautiful place.
Very powerful and hollow when big. Some really classic sections (sometimes a Pipeline-like take off zone) but with choppy ones due to the rocks below. Quite dangerous. Don't surf alone.

caves ?! - as a local I'm a bit surprised when some guys talk about caves sucking surfers I've heard of them they are pretty cool to find good fish for lunch but no more

i simply confirm - a phantastic but dangerous spot, never surf alone and take your stay at manapany as a cultural experience because we are not a touristic place at all and even less a meeting point of the surf community. about sharks: i m not really shure they are more frequent, bigger and more dangerous than elsewhere as long as you respect the basic rules to avoid troubled waters and critical times. i live in manapany les bains and keep a small touristic structure and i can assure not having met problems with surfers knowing their responsabilities and limits. just drop me a message in case you need more information. peter (57) unfortunately getting too old to surf this spot!

- reefs are fine here. they sucked dry but were not clouted by any big waves. manapany is a very cool place. Don't go alone in the water because there are underwater caves here and well known breeding ground for huge hungry sharks. Beware.
