Pipes in Kadavu Passage is an exposed reef break that has quite consistent surf, although summer tends to be mostly flat. The best wind direction is from the north northeast. Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the ideal swell direction is from the south. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up. Beware of coral.
