Is hideaway resort a good place to learn to surf« on: August 15 2005 22:08:00 »
I live in North Carolina on the coast of the US, and i'm only used to surfing 3 footers as I have just learned how incredible it is to surf, i'm gonna be at hideaway resort over christmas and new years and was wondering if i should surf the break right out in front of the resort or should i try to go somewhere else on the island for my first "REAL" surfing experience, i don't think i've seen a wave over 6 feet since i started so was looking for a wave that is well built as far as shape goes but not too high so i could survive a few falls, Any help would be appreciated greatly

hideaway rights are abit hairy for beginers, best try sigatoka beach area,or natadola beach if its too big everywere else, not far by taxi, worth the effort, give hideaway a go before you leave though, you might like it.

i went to fiji last year and scored insane surf. we stayed all over viti levu (including hideaways) and visited other islands by boat.
Hideaways is a narly wave.. it barrels really hard and mostly closed out when i was there. it breaks on sketchy reef too... get ready to get shacked and tossed
