There is a lot of water that flows in and out of the bay and tide shifts quickly.
I spoke to people living there who said there wasn't any waves, but found waves right on our doorstep! As a result, I hadn't packed my board so I asked a local Dhow craftsman to make one - really good craftsmanship, and would recommend having a board shaped locally by Mussage see here: http://justinbeswick.co.za/2017/08/mussage-when-we-plant-the-tree/
Warm water with friendly Dhow and Dug-out fisherman that pass by with their daily route to go fishing.
I visited and noted this spot in August, when I stayed there for 3 weeks and saw waves for 90% on those days.
A fun wave if you're visiting Pemba. I wouldn't make a specific trip to Pemba for the surf, but if you're going to be there - pack your board.
