Park your at Long Reef beach and prepare for an extremely long, frightning paddle. To surf this place properly you will need a big island style gun and a lot of experience in huge style. This place has power like some of the famous big wave spots in Hawaii.

- this bombie needs a storm swell to get going. it is usualy pretty deep out there so the waves r really full and therefore hard to catch. best bet is a longboard, or if u wanna take a risk with a shorter board, sit on the outside of the impact zone. ull get more waves, but come a cleanup set, and u might be regretting it...has power- u dont want to get caught in a set. if you have a jetski, tow ins are not a bad idea when its clean. i suggest not going out unless its clean, which is rare, because groundswells are very rarely big enough to get going on the bombie
