you can drive to the area by car and the need to find a boat at he village 5-10min. Or take a boat from town and drive for 45-1hour to the spot.
the spot is located at the right side of a channel, it is also a div site for manta rays and conservation area. The wave is fast break break on a good day and it barrel when conditions are good. The wave break at two section - because of the formation of the reef- the wave break from shallow water and roll to deep water in the end- you can kick out in the first section or continue on at the second section of where it turn right again become hollow peak up again and can take you on another wild ride in the end of the wave.
it also feel like your surfing in river where the bottom of the water is moving forward fast under your feet (due to current) - while the wave is moving forward at the top. the outward flow of the current will take out easily when you get caught inside.
this spot is as good as west passage on a good day-- it is 15 minutes boat ride from west passage. it is also the second largest ship channel in Palau. because of the short bottom/reef and strong current--its not a spot for beginner -- the spot is in-front of my house and i usually surf it when the swell drop to head high +/- overhead. i would not surf this spot by myself on a big day. i broke two boards,lost SUP paddles at this spot already- including friends i surf with sometime.
