There is a little break on the left hand side that always breaks. There is also a reef break on the left. This is a great spot for bodyboarders. On the right side of the beach there are more reef breaks. These work great on big swells but they are dangerous, only for the experienced.
Wait till the surf has maxed out everywhere else on the island, this rarely happens. But when it does grab your gun and head to YC for some crazy crazy tubular sections
This spot is a classic wave when it's good it's mad. Should try it!
