The Sequel in Efate is an exposed reef break that has pretty consitent surf. Autumn and winter are the favoured times of year for waves. Works best in offshore winds from the southwest. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the best swell direction is from the southeast. Both left and right reef breaks. Relatively few surfers here, even on good days. Take care of coral and rips.
