General

Great spot if you have the time, money or Yacht to get there.

Incredibly beautiful, too, but...there are more sharks in these waters than I have ever seen ANYWHERE...granted, they are mostly white and black tips, mostly, but thick as fleas

- heaps more..., how about surfing the mururoa atoll in the vibrating atmosphere of post nuclear blast radioactivity, maybe together with some 3 headed sharks? Awesome, need more bombs!

alota islands - theres so many islands theres gotta be heaps more waves than just that one

By Mike D. , 14-04-2003

watch out!!! - I was as this spot in Nov. of 2002. This area is seldom visited and very expensive to reach. There are quite a few bodyborders, and mostly locals who are very protective. In my opinion the area is very dangerous because the break is very shallow and rocky. There is also alot of current as this is where the ocean pours into the atoll and vice versa. Tons of sharks aswell.
