 Informations supplémentaires

Info from surfingtonga.com .
"Pass Lefts"
It is a south swell set-up and is an "easy" wave to surf. Very popular with learners and those who like mellow waves. It rarely holds bigger than head-high and peels slowly around the reef into a defined channel. It can be hollow but isn't dangerous and far less challenging than other surfspots along the Ha'atafu coast. Once the swell gets overhead all the wave's energy focuses on a wide peak next to the channel that breaks into a fat shoulder. Rideable for 3 hours either side of high tide.

"Pass Right"
This is a summer north swell righthander right across the channel from "Pass Lefts". Its a fun wave popular with beginners and those who prefer mellow, less intense waves. It has a barreling take-off section that runs for 15 - 20 metres before hitting a channel. The rest of the ride (30 metres) is a mellow shoulder which is great for beginners (up to shoulder high) as it has an easy take-off, a soft-breaking sloping face and is also quite deep so its not dangerous at all. There is a slight current sweeping into the channel through the inside of the break but its not strong on small - medium sized days and easy to escape if you paddle across the rip towards the main break. It gets a little more serious once overhead and is unsuitable for beginners as current in the pass intensifies. This spot needs a straight north swell to break well. Any west in the swell and it hits too square onto the shelf and mostly closes-out. Its definitely worth a paddle most days and is one of the more consistent summer surfspots. Surfable 3 hours either side of high tide.
