Paddle out in the small Chanel just to the right of the new bay Vila hotel. Watch the wave from the hotel terrace eating awesome local cuisine.

Surfed it at low tide with a big swell and managed to surf past the bit of reef that's in the way. Smaller swell on high tide was more fun but not too much power. There is 2 peaks depending on swell size and tide.
Really good for longboard or sup.
New bay view Vila great place to stay and check the wave out.
The spot is sketchy and definitely not for beginners. Lots of rocks.
At low tide huge rock that sticks out right in the line so catch the bigger sets to get around it. Also on mid tide there is a bit of reef that sucks up and looks like it might break but then reforms just to the left which is where the better take off is.
On bigger days the waves closes out a bit but you can still get a long ride.
Always empty and if you're confident it's just for you
