 Additional Information

The reef consists of a left and right that break only during high tide over the rocky outcrop in the middle of Vazon bay. The left starts working on a lower tide and consists of a fast ledgy takeoff right next to the infamous "nipple rock" followed by a disappointing slow inside section. On a larger spring tide the right starts to produce equally fast ledgy takeoffs followed by a longer inside wall. Generally a fun wave which can occasionally produce some really good and hollow waves when big. As with most of the spots at Vazon it is not as exposed to swell or winds as spots like perelle and therefore can be a good place to head when conditions aren't clean.

Optimism - I don't get why people slate surf spots, you know we all don't live by pipeline.....and even if some of us did....honestly, could you surf it????? I don't think so. You gotta make the most of what you got. Instead of putting a downer on spots that you may have surfed on a shit day, why not spread the stoke and write about the goodtimes for fellow riders...makes sense eh?
