There are several YouTube videos of the same location - one from 13 years ago, with a bigger swell than the O'Neill video, so it is not particularly "secret"A long trip to surf an 'ok' wave.
I'm usually pretty quick at finding stuff on google maps, but this one has me stumped.
It is not Tabuaeran/Fanning Island - could be; as the setups are similar but it's not.I know! And I thought I knew where it was (Fanning Island), but it wasn't.
Obviously not an easy place to get to, and an even tougher place to time a swell due to those difficulties and the narrow swell angle that works. I was there on a boat years ago and our well travelled captain claimed it was the best reef setup for surfing he’s ever seen. It’s pretty hard to dispute that watching video.Clips on YouTube, the place they stayed has a Facebook listing - have y'all found it yet?
Figured it now. Wasn't where I originally thought. I've had a few friends hit this area.Clips on YouTube, the place they stayed has a Facebook listing - have y'all found it yet?
Not too difficult to get to - has an airport.Obviously not an easy place to get to
But it doesn't have Facebook-listed accommodations, an airport for easy access nor are there numerous clips that name the spot on YouTube -already known
