The surf house is located 100metres from the beach and set on 2000 square metres of land. Currently with 8 fan cooled rooms. Which are clean with an ensuite and cold water bathroom. Rooms are either double bed or twin set up and have a nice veranda out front.

Meals range from Banana pancakes to Marlin Steak Barbeque with mash potato. The surf house is owned by a local surfer who will give you all the info on the surf conditions.
There are 4 quality breaks all within a 200 metre walk of the surf house. The best season for waves to co-incide with the offshore trade winds is from late October until the end of March/ start of April.
"THE LEFT" – this can be surfed on all tides, it is a long wave that breaks best from 2 to 5 foot. The take off is wally and this wave continues to wall up and barrel. There are 2 take off points there seems to be some wider sets that come through frequently.
"THE PEAK" – this is your ultimate A frame peak with a punchy take off and then line yourself up for a barrel. The Left gives you a nice wall to work as well as a barrel. The right is straight into a barrel. Works best mid tides ... the left can be surfed at low tide also ... the right gets a bit sectiony at low tide. Best from 2 to 5 foot.
"PINE TREES" – this is an ultimate world class right hander that can break up to 200metres long.. although it needs a decent west or south west swell to get it firing. Best on Mid tides. This wave has a couple of take off points and stands up and barrels the whole way ... depending on your speed you might be able to get out on the shoulder ... but mostly surfers like to be in the pocket ... best from 4 foot – 8 foot. The take off is friendly and then it stands up and takes you for the ride of your life.
"TAKANORI" - a short paddle north of the peak is another Right hander. This wave is best from 2 – 5 foot and is more of a workable wall with the occasional barrel. Fun Fun Fun. Best on a mid to high tide.
