 Additional Information

This is one of the longest and fastest waves in the world on its day. It breaks as long as J-Bay when it's peeling and there's multiple barrel sections. The paddle back out is lengthy! Shallow, Hollow, super fast...WICKED!

Atmosphere

I pulled a leash plug out here and lots of boards have been snapped. Have a look at Young Guns 2 DVD if you want to see this place at mid size. It's fickle wind wise but one good wave here will have you claiming this spot as your favourite!

It's certainly the longest wave I've ever ridden. I'll be back.

riffles is over? - Been surfing the area every year since 2000, the new resort out there has ruined the area. They'll dump 20 guys in the line-up at once!

cheap accom on island - hey, I noticed that someone posted on here that you can stay on the island at a cheaper place called grandmas? If anyone could give me some info on this I would be stoked... cheers

Rifles is over - All the land camps in the Playgrounds area are overcrowding the spots. For example, Rifles is now being taken over by the owners of the Kandui Resort. They are laying claim to pretty much any wave they want, even if it means snowballing people that are in the barrel. Gone are the days when people took turns in Indo and everyone was mellow. Rifles is now a free-for-all zoo thanks to the Kandui Resort.
