An open ocean left-hander that ramps up in the middle of a coral reef 22km out to sea. Often referred to as the “Cloudbreak” of the coral coast. Smaller days offer long playful walls and the occasional barrel, while bigger days see fast and hollow waves that completely wrap around the reef. Expect hollow and very heavy left-hand freight trains when the swell gets over 6 ft.
Receives consistent swell almost all year round with the incoming S and SW Swells. East and NE winds are best and SE blows directly offshore. Frigates is a good bet if all other spots are blown out by the trade winds. High tide offers up the best shape and makeability. Rides well over 150 metres are not uncommon. Beware as the paddle back out to the lineup can be brutal and currents are strong here.
