 Additional Information

Works better on smaller days (4-6 feet). Hire a boat from a local as the paddle out is long and currents are strong through the reef pass. My guide advised taking the last wave of every set as the earlier waves put more water on over the reef. It closes out on dry reef at the end of the section so get off when the opportunity presents itself. Something I didn't do and I lost my board after bailing on one when I rode it too far.

Atmosphere

I got this spot at 8 feet and empty and my guide didn't even venture out as it was too heavy. Probably a good thing in hind sight as he was able to bring his boat into the line-up to rescue me after my board washed in over the reef. This is place is worth the effort when a moderate swell is running as it is a mechanical barrel and rarely surfed by travelling surfers.
