This surf spot is a good alternative of Carana Beach when the trade wind blow down. The coral reef is very dangerous. North East Point is unsurfable during the low tide, you have to wait the high tide. Even that, when it's the high tide it's very shallow. The wave offers some good sections especially with the right which is hollow and fast. There is also a short left. You can surf this spot during the SE trade wind but waves quality is cross shore and open to the wind.
It's a good surf spot and it can be a good alternative when other places are crowded or don't have surf potential. It isn't an epic surf spot. The reef is very dangerous, I broke my shoulder on this reef. You can surf only at high tide in spite of that it always shallow. I remember that my fingertips touched the reef when I was paddling.

So true - this reef is so bloody shallow its a joke, can get really good though on a high tide.
