Atmosphere

this particular spot is very fun, but unfortunately, when the swell comes directly from the south(which is the best direction) the wave breaks on a very specific, very small boil rock. five guys is really all it can accomidate. there are already a lot of tourist that come and gum up the line-up as it is. with soooo many other surf spots to be found on maui, you wont really be missing much. besides, little beach is pretty much a guaranteed board dinger/breaker, do to how shallow it breaks over the reef. when its breaking from the south, the peak and first barrel section break in about two feet of water over very unforgiving reef.
