- When there is a typhoon swell, this break lights up. Whenever the ASP World Tour comes to town, they make a bee line toward this wave. Did anyone watch the 2005 Japan Pro? A.Irons VS K.Slater in the final. PERFECT 4-6 FOOT SURF. Barrels galore!Doesn't get much better that that!

Take ya dresses off please! - I surfed this spot last week, the tyhoon that hit us gave us 15 feet plus waves, everywhere was too big or just messy crap so i went to this spot as i,ve surfed the outside reef before at 8 feet, but the waves this time were huge breaking right through into malibu, its the biggest i have seen it here, there was no one out and malibu was holding a few so i went out. The waves were 8 feet plus and just grinding across the reef, the rights were barreling top ta bottom, i scored it with no one else out, as i sat out there so maney people were watching and out of 50 so people only 3 came out and the waves were sic what were they thinking, if that was back home in oz it would have been packed! Give it a go ya big fairys...
