First surfed by Callahan 1996 boat trip with Pat O'Connell and Satoshi Sekino, Yin Yang got epic during Oxbow seaplane trip in June 2004. Yin Yang is a long and typical outside typical reef corner right in a pass. Outside is a mellow wall, often cross shore, with safe rides in deep water. Then, the wave bends in the corner, mush out for a while, then wraps into one of the most critical sections in the Maldives. Inside section can be long and tubular, I've seen guys getting barreled 3 times but it can be fairly heavy too on pretty uneven reef, producing potential intimidating barrels on the first bend.

Hello!!! INFO please... - Hello, im travelling from Portugal for the third time to Maldives, im staying at the Hudhuranfushi for 15 days in September 2007, and i was wondering if from Hudhruran Fushi (ex lohifushi) what are the chances of getting a boat or a plane to YAN YANG to score that inside corner :) is very very very far or kind of accessible from Hudhuran Fushi (Lohifushi) ?...
