Description of The Bowl, Tonga

This is a serious wave. Short, intense and a perfect barrel when conditions come together. Deep tubes the norm. Its a fickle surfspot requiring a strong south swell to break at its best. Any west in the swell and all the energy focuses to the end section ....... only half the usual length of ride. A favourite with bodyboarders. Can be ridden across low tide but best at mid - high. Good to wear some rubber here especially at low tide.
