Description of Behind the island, Mauritius

The water there is very warm.The longest it could take to padle out to the waves would be fife mins.There could be difficulties to get out sometimes when tere is a strong current ,but that hardly ever happens.You can sometimes hurt your-self on the reef when it is shallow,but no bad injuries have happened there.the wave it-self over there is very different every day.Most of the times it barrels.The wave is quite powerfull but the ride is not to fast,but it actualy depends on the day..it can verydifferent every day.The spot only works when there is no wind or when the wind is calm.It is very glassy.The regular size of the wave is around 6foot big....well if you want to know more about it, come and check it out your-self or e-mail this address: doinky69@hotmail.com.
