 Additional Information

There are two theories to how it got its name - because the wedging barrel is so round it's 360 degrees plus another five, and because there is a wave here 365 days of the year. Further down from the Kom, 365s is a classic but fickle outside reef that can produce epic waves. You usually can't surf it on the low tide for two reasons: the kelp on the way out is a nightmare to negotiate, and the rocky ledge on which it breaks gets too shallow, making for heart-stopping double-up ledges. However, when a very clean West swell is running, it can be surfed in any tide, and can cook on the low tide, when the inside reef becomes a top-to-bottom tube. This wave gets world class, and has been likened to backdoor pipeline when at its best. Likes a 5-8 groundswell, best on glassy mornings with little wind.
