 Additional Information

Only surfed it once and it was too big and washes out at 8-12 foot faces, so needs to be only about 4 to 8 foot faces max. There was also a wicked current sweep to the north with a very heavy dumping beachbreak at this size, making it hard to get in.

Surf then on smallish to medium days, and with more south in the swell it lines up better. Trade SE wind gets into it a little bit as well, so morning is better. It's pretty empty and isolated.

Breaks over about 100m or more, about 200m out from the shoreline, and dies out in deep water. Doesnt handle big sizes, or seem to barrel when I was there. Average.
