Fast Lefts in Efate is an exposed reef break that has fairly consistent surf. Winter is the favoured time of year for surfing here. Offshore winds blow from the north northeast. Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the optimum swell angle is from the south. A reef breaks left. Best around high tide when the tide is rising. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up. Take care of coral.
