In 1991 Mugundas was the first and last place I tried to learn how surf. You access (back then) a dirt road and drive to the entry point. You to climb down about a 40*50ft coral reef cliff to get out to the water. Take someone who knows the area and be ready to climb fast and hard to get out of there.

A dangerous place to surf, so you need to be experinced and a strong swimmer. Some dive skills wouldn't hurt either.

Valleyweather's brother - Guam was a great surf experience. Lots of reef scars that have stayed with me. Valleyweather is right about only going out if you are experienced. Otherwise head to Talafofo. I've had some of the best waves of my life there at Magundas, but also Rick's Reef, Boat Basin and Morizo. Boat Basin and Morizo lefts are better for surfers to chase than the rights, but rights are good on mainly higher tides for surfers because those reef heads stick out pretty good and you'll be dodgin' or getting some damage to your fins at minimum. Bodyboarders hit anywhere they want of course.
Depending on the swell Ilig Bay at the dog leg of the edge of the table reef brings a pretty clean but short left. Nice little barrels, but becareful, I don't remember the season, but there are certain times of the year that the white tip sharks breed there and you don't want to be there. Otherwise the black tips are around some but won't bother you unless you are bleeding - so where booties if you are walking across the reef table from the jungle path.
Man I miss Guam. The people, the surf and just the beauty. Hope to get back some day. It's been 23 years. Hafa to my old Chamorro friends.

Surfed it from 1992 to 1994 - My brother and I used to go here, and for the guy who was learning, bad place to go. You should have went to Talofofo Bay. I am a meteorologist, and used to track typhoon swells (the northern winter storms do not drop too much swell this direction), which made this place absolutely awesome, but very dangerous. First, you have to climb down the breakwater, which is probably near 40 feet of decent (at least it seemed like it with how long it took to get down to the channel), then, you have to paddle out through the channel, which is like paddling against a river (good luck walking across the reef when it is big). Once out, you wait for the sets to come in. One particular typhoon-swell day, we had to watch and time the sets for about an hour to get a real feel for how much time we had to get down and into the water, then back out and safely up the breakwater before the next set came through. We figured we had a max of 20 minutes or so, and it took almost all of that to paddle back in against the current in the channel, and then climb back up the rocks to safety before one of those sets swept across the rocks and pulled you in with it. Serious place, and you need to know how to watch for those typhoon swells, because the local forecasts (at least when I was there doing my own) only accounted for local wind generated swells and other shorter period swells. The "every 20 minutes or so" typhoon swells seemed off the radar to the local forecasters, and the Navy. When we were there the Air Force had made surfing against the rules due to the dangerous reef, but the Navy didn't give a crap, so we were good to go. The only people we ever saw at these more hard core spots were locals, and Navy SEALs. My brother even had to give medical attention to a guy who was a SEAL, after a very late drop on a wave so hollow you could put a school bus in it. He came up screaming in pain, and the reef had scraped his skin and muscle off of/ out of his shin. It was pretty intense. I am not posting this to scare people, but just to say, know what you are doing at this spot, and many on Guam.
