Scary drop when over 5 feet.Massive tubes on both waves.Don't forget to respect the locals(they can be a pain in the ass), especially if you go on weekends(which i don't recommend because it's too crowded)

What's the deal with these WHITE SHORTS - I keep reading about the locals being complete DICKS. But I reckon I won't get hassled if I keep to the normal rules right?
I wanne enjoy this beabeautiful setting and not worry about getting hassled.

Mauritius so beautiful....Mauritian white shorts so bad - I just want to advise people who are planning to visit mauritius for surf...
I'have been there for 2 weeks, first day in Tamarin I have surfed for one hour with cool locals when an old blonde man whith blu eyes (some guys told me his fucking name is BRUNO, but i'm not sure????) ordered me to go out and punched my friend whitout any reasons. We were surfing in peace, no problems with the others..
Another day in One eye, another white man didn't let us to surf, so we went out again...
I have surfed many places all over the word, France, Portugal, Morocco, Canary island, Brazil, Indonesia and so on..I have never seen something like that. I can understand localism when foreign people do not respect..but not in this way... Surf is another thing..
I travel for surf, I will never be back in your beautiful island because of some hangry stupid locals and I will never advise a friend to go there for surf...
So please, (I'm speaking to all other mauritian surfers ) do not let that stupid, hangry locals destroy the image your island
