Interesting how this glossy video flatters the spot as perhaps the helicopter shots of Hookipa etc do. Besides some nice jumps, frontside hits, backside 360's etc you also get a good impression of how nasty it is to get caught on the inside there with unrelenting white water pushing you onto Godzilla. The shallow reef just downwind of the tiny beach makes it a bit like Hookipa in reverse in terms of ending up on the rocks.
Thanks for the link.
