Sandy with some rocks, between LNG plant and seal colony.
Good spot for a few fun rides, and cool scenery with LNG plant and Oil Export Terminal in the background. Similar spots in vicinity. Aniva Bay will never make it into the top spots of any serious rating as generally wind swell, once wind is gone swell goes down rapidly. Fun one to ride though in absence of better alternatives nearby. And to know that the whole bay (and perhaps island) has been surfed by virtually no one before - know of only three persons in total.
TLU normally stands for Tanker Loading Unit that is just offshore. Locals translate it into tube loading unit :)
