 Additional Information

Breaks like Sunset in Oahu when it's over 8 ft. It sticks way out into the Indian Ocean so it picks up alot of swell. Alot of water moving and frequent clean up sets. It's an insane wave though if you get the right one. Check out Curren ripping this place on a fish in the old Rip Curl video.
