 Additional Information

Suck reef is a mid-high tide peak that breaks over an outside reef in the centre of vazon bay. Works only during large winter swells when t'otherside starts to hit the 5-6ft mark. Generally recognised as a left which offers a fast ledgy take-off followed by a decent walling section before dropping off as the reef deepens on the inside. The more rarely surfed right offers a shallow & steep take-off followed by a good initial wall followed by a flatter second section. Generally breaks up to about 8ft when the left joins up with the rights of t'otherside to close-out the middle of the bay, at this size the right also closes-out most of the way to centres reef.
