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.
gps directions should be outlawed for surf spots.
if you cant go out and find a surf break, you need to be surfing malibu or something
