Drive down the Nichinan coast up to where the Mobile oil tanks are. There's a 7/11. You can park there and further down the road.

This wave is extremely powerful and can rip your wetsuit off. The waves hold you down like Haleiwa toilet bowl on the NorthSHore of Oahu and have the same kind of water color.
You can get tubed, like Curren showed it in 1991, but this wave can break your leg too!
Easy to get waves when the waves get double overhead as the crowd quickly thins out.
Good spot on the right swell direction. Can be annoying to eat it at low tide and get pushed towards the sow like rocky bottom.

- surfed it once, 3-4ft at mid-tide with about 15 people and it felt crowded. one take off spot. line up boys. wave was fairly slow, but clean and easy to paddle out; just jump off the wall.

- Currens hardly ever breaks. the main break here is a left, on the left in front of some convenience store. Shallow and crowded unless it's goin off, and then you can be a star for a day as the pussies line up to watch from the shore.

Got it wrong! - I lived and surfed in the 'Zak for several years and you've confused two spots here. Uchiumi is a left inside the Uchiumi harbour breaking just left of a rock that sticks up from the sharply ridged rockbed. It's a quick, barrelling wave and only works on good-sized southerly and south-westerly swells. It has a tight local crew, but if you wait your turn you'll get rides. Curren's Point is actually to the right and south of this spot. It only works on big typhoon swells and again breaks over very shallow ridged rocks. Neither are secrets - just search on the web!
