King Kong Left Spot Guide

Stormrider Guide

To get to Kadavu Island requires the added expense of an extra flight, but provides crowd-free line-ups and an amazing, light aircraft flight over Frigates, landing on a short narrow airstrip at Vunisea. Many take a 45min boat ride to Nagigia Island (Naninya) on the SW tip, where there are several spots within a 5min boat ride or paddle from the private resort. King Kong Left hits a notch in the otherwise straight fringing reef and wedges up a horseshoe peak that quickly opens up and barrels, before backing off then pitching again on the shallow inside. It’s short, but consistent, holding great shape when small and wild tubes over 6-8ft (2-2.5m).

Intermediate to expert, depending on tide, size and the cross-shore trades.
