 Additional Information

This wave needs a perfect take off to surf, once you have taken the ledgy sucky drop (not to deep) this break will provide you with a near perfect barrell, if not perfect.The long island reef at the south end of Newport catches swell from all directions but its only rideable waves are on the northern side when an E to NE swell pushes through and stands up on the reef pumping out a powerful right, known as Crosswaves. The right peels along the reef sectioning, make a point of getting out of the wave before you reach the far end of the island and avoid finding why this spot is so appropriately named. Crosswave holds massive S to NE swells, requiring bigger boards and humungous nads.

Atmosphere

This spot reminds me of shark island and wiamea point put together, I say this because it is hollow sucky and heavy like shark island and there may be 4-5 people to a wave when its big like wiamea.
