 Additional Information

Info from surfingtonga.com

Lighthouse comprises two separate breaks ie "Outside Lighthouse" and "Inside Lighthouse". They are both on the same reef and are separated by a long close-out section aptly named (by Margo) "The Surgeons Table". Outside Lightouse is a fast barrelling right with some super hollow sections. Wave length is about 50 metres. It's surfable at all tides and is often best on low tide .... particularly when small. However caution is advised at low tide as one mistake in timing and either you or your board (or both) could be end up on "the table" !!!! Inside Lighthouse is best on mid to high tides and is an intense barrelling wave. A heaving / pitching peak take-off runs into a warping tube that runs into a defined channel. Wavelength is about 30 metres. Both spots for intermediate to advanced surfers.
