- I am a beginner and need to rent board/wetsuit. This beach is beautiful and really a fun place to surf. Plus there is Koa Surf School which is an awesome place to rent equipment from and hang out for the day. I had a wonderful surf day here. T

la terriere - spot sympa pour débuter et bonne ambiance entre surfer. Etant débutant et habitant au pied de cette plage, j'y vais presque 2 fois par semaine et souvent des cadores du surf me donnent des infos pour mieux avancer dans mon surf. Je trouve ca sympa et merci à ceux qui partage le plaisir de l'ocean

- I had a fantastic dawny session here this summer (July 09) and caught my first ever barrel. I had to walk through the forest for 10 mins to get to the beach, which adds to the anticipation, and when I got there it was pumping 5-6 ft glassy, hollow waves. Absolutely perfect. I also had a half mile stretch all to myself. This place will live long in my memory.
