General Break Information


On a good size and swell direction this wave will grow slowly as the swell climbs the reef into a solid wall and rifle down the line.

Long boarders have a clear advantage in picking off the set waves however shortboards sitting in the impact zone will be able to pick off some very very nice waves with good power and vertical walls.

On a smaller swell and low tide the wave will break on the reef and half way down there is a nasty shallow spot - pull-in and pray - and you might make it out of an excellent tube.

Osaki Right. Further around towards Misaki is a right hander with an excellent tube section. The wave is steeper and more of a short board wave than the lefts. The take off stands up as the swell hits the reef and in the right conditions will barrel from the takeoff.

Localism: One issue in both these places is a lot of surfers come in large groups, another is the waves do not break often so when they do everyone wants on it.

Difficult to tell who is a local and who is just part of a group acting like locals.

Paddle hard, don’t pull back, don’t drop in and everyone will get the picture that you are there to surf not to watch.......

Paddle out: From the car park in front of Kabune (or walk around to the port and paddle out from in front of the wave). It is about 500m or a 10~15 minute paddle across deep water.

Perfect-O-Meter: 8 (1= 1 ft wind slop; 10 = G-Land)
