Description of Bourail, New Caledonia
You can ride a left or a right hander wave, as you prefer. It depends of witch area of the reef you are on. It's a very good, powerful wave that barrels all the time! You can ride barrels of 100 m long! But if the wave is big, you better to have a quite good surf level.(reef break.) You have got to take a boat to get to the spot,the farest reef is at 10km from the coast!!! You can sleep at the local surf camp, eat there, and the "Taxi surf" will bring you to the spot.
