Suicide - This a dangerous spot, do not go out without friends to help you or when its huge. Surfing is like a 5 second wave before you gotta bail or get turned to burger meat. The local bodyboarders are very well attuned to the spot, ask them for some tips. I go freediving of the coast there I have never seen a shark.

Crazy Sick Pits - This wave can hurt you badly. Extremely rocky and dangerous, better left to look at and respect from afar. Huge sharks off Upolu too.
