Discription of surf spot: Off the Wall, Hawaii

The break's given name stems from a rock wall built next to a public right-of-way off Ke Nui road. In the water, it's separated from the Backdoor reef by a narrow deep crevice, which blocks some swells from closing out across both breaks. The OTW reef is largely flat lava, with a mound of shallower reef near its northern edge. Best in a slightly fractured four to six foot northwest swell, it's a wedging right, with some smaller lefts peeling back toward Backdoor. On precisely the right wave, OTW will produce a beautiful almond-shaped barrel; many waves will be caught and ridden to closeout point by the hopeful surfer before that ideal one is found.
