 Additional Information

Totally insane break, very huge when nice swell hits. Tow in only! You will never make the paddle in. Breaks almost as fast as Ma'alaea Bay. Watching the break from the scenic point by Honolii Ive seen it totally go off, 20+ plus easlily. Mostly lefts but a few rights. This insane break is pretty rare. Like 1 or 2 days per year maybe. Usually during a huge north swell or during a storm. Better be a pro before you even think about trying this spot.
