The Place is on the main Island about 7 km from Port Villa Called Pango Beach
Boats are absolutely a must and the locals are great. If you have an old board it is better as you can leave these for the locals to surf on. (no surfing gear is available there) Bus transport is great and there is no need to hassle as you wont be hassled. Good place if you have kids and a wife and just want a bit of fun

Atmosphere

this spot is awesome it has so much pace and power it will blow your mind.It is a local break on a typical islander village the people are freindly and good fun the break itself seems to cope with upto 10 people. However its not the place to hassel into the peak as you could find yourself landing on exposed coral nor is the place to be greedy have your ride and pull off as you can very quickly be looking at doing a floater onto exposed tree coral.
I took a bic plastic board as my wife and baby can get use out of this aswell as it is to be noted that contact with the coral on a duck dive is inevitable.

General

If your hardcore not the place to go seek more demaning difficult to acess places like the Pentecost Isl or eastern side of main island you wont be dissapointed .However if the other half says its all about surf and not her this place is a great compromise. Probaly wouldnt recommend a long Board. But hey some of the wilder reef breaks made me consider a boogie board (youd need stainless steel legs to avoid tissue damage.)

and take snokelling gear why not do it all in one hit.
