Teraitea from French Polynesia
“Super surf spot for all grades with dangerous tide... but no risk if being careful.
Beginners can practise at the first spot at aprox. 7O meters from the beach... and profesionals can have fun at the real surf spot "Parea Right"...when the conditions are good, there is a perfect long wave, hollow and a big tube could be surfed...
It is possible to surf the left surf spot... but it's a little bit more dangerous because of the reef... and sharks.
Bye, and enjoy the ride.”

We hope you find the new 12-day forecasts and additional details useful.

Kudos to everyone who helped us debug this over the past 3 months.

Be sure to click on the Advanced Surf option to see extra details about the sea-state. Look out for crossing swells and short period local wind swells and chop that will often spoil a groundswell even if the wind is perfect. As yet there is no allowance for this in the swell rating. This is something we are working on.
