This wave only breaks on giant swells, i have seen it break over 16ft, completly clean and perfect, it breaks far from the coast almost 500m and we advise you to go by Boat, paddle at your own risk.
I recon that this monster might need some TOW IN in the bigger days.
Please watch out, we are talking about a deadly perfection, this is for Pros or kamikazes only.
The atmosphere is very heavy, rarely some one goes out, and you will feel alone, your far from the coast and any mistake can turn this perfect bomb into your worst nightmare.
Amazing to watch ;)I reccon that this could be a hidden treasure for big riders.
-TOW IN ONLY! ( or adviced! )
