 Additional Information

It's not easy to find, after all it is about 500m out to see... would be a hell of a paddle. I was staying at the Sa'moana, so was easy cause we were with guides.. you will need a boat, from land. It's about 300m west of Pebbles, wedgy right just near the reef pass to get back into land.

Atmosphere

you're out in the middle of the ocean here. Pretty peaceful, nice reef breaking way up the line, which on the right day would be epic. You sit at the end of the reef, right on the pass, wraps around the reef and bowls at the end.

General

It's a bit fickle and sectiony, but the end section is awesome and throws way out, it's almost like the wave is coming towards you. Great for smacking the lip or getting pitted.
