 Informations supplémentaires

charge it at the bowling section, and pull in. Bowl section is when it starts turning around the reef passage. The reef seemed to have a boomerang type shape with lefts going diagonally down the line and a very deceptive looking fast right/closeout around the corner. The inside waves which broke from about 3-4 ft, had a nice open section at the start with a good wall which got faster and rounder the further you went down the line, until it eventually closes out on shallow coral. The sets tended to break in a couple of spots. The usual ones would break just as the inside ones, but about 30-40 yards further out and a bit longer and faster. These tended to be best ones at about 5-7 ft. I saw a few bombs come through which were a couple of feet bigger and went longer, and unriden. Every now and again there would be a few rogue sets which would break wide and more parallel to the reef. These were fast, hollow and makeable but shorter (get out before the end). The sets seemed to come out of the deep and just appear on the edge of the shelf, which made it hard to stay in position for them. And there is no channel to paddle through once caught inside. I also surfed it in fun, small 2-3 ft offshore/cross-shore. A great wave whichever the size.

Yanuca Island Resort August 2014 - Its been awhile since anyone commented here so I'm adding my 2 cents. I stayed at the Yanuca Island Resort (YIR) in August of 2014. I think it is the only tourist resort operating on Yanuca now - the other resort next beach up was shuttered. YIR is run by Mr. Wise - a very cool Fijian man, who lives there with his Family. His phone if you want to enquire is: (+679) 997 8958. I enjoyed my stay there, its good value, beautiful, very relaxing and the food (included in price) was plentiful and good. The accommodations are very basic and run down but totally adequate for surf rats. However you (and your girlfriend) will be disappointed if you are expecting anything more. The break is way out to sea. Come prepared for a long, rough, wet boat ride especially if it is windy - rain gear and something warm to wear, handy tip lifejackets make good seat cushions. The wave is heavy. I surfed it during a swell, 6-8', in the strong cross wind - I think that is the normal trade wind condition, by myself for two days and with one Kiwi on the third day and I was intimidated, more concerned with dodging sets than catching waves. It does the below sea level draw down with a minimal back, ala Teahupoo, when the sets pop up out of nowhere. The thick, hollow ones swing wide and detonate like Cloudbreak, however unlike Cloudbreak some waves section and are unmakeable. There is a freaky "mushroom reef" section at the tail end of the break that adds to the fear factor. That said there are lots of great rides there for the taking if you are willing to commit and charge. I heard Cloudbreak was 10' on this swell so it might be a little smaller than Cloudbreak on any giving swell. It is worth checking out if you are looking for a basic, challenging, less crowded option than Cloudbreak, but come prepared for the elements and to sack up. Say hi to Mr. Wise and his boy Saki for me if you go. Its nice to know your dollars are going to local Fijians instead of an expat or a corporation.
