Tanga Roa on the South Coast is an exposed reef break that has reasonably consistent surf, although summer tends to be mostly flat. Offshore winds are from the north. Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the best swell direction is from the south. A reef breaks left. Surfable at all stages of the tide. It very rarely gets crowded here. Beware of urchins, rips, rocks and sharks.
