“Reef break with no channel. Difficult paddle out. You had better be a good swimmer. November to March has consistent surf but almost always has onshore winds. April to October ranges from usually flat to massive and is almost always offshore winds. Good for intermediate surfers unless it's BIG. Usually mushy, occasionally gaping dry barrels. Rides can be up to 250 meters.”
