Regularly picked as a national contest site, Cúpula is regarded as the best wave in the zone. It breaks best at 6-12ft (2-4m) and locals compare it to Tavarua. Exaggeration or not, the wave is indeed a long left with several tubular sections, breaking over magma rock reef. The occasional shorter right can be ridden as well. Friendly locals may give tips on how to handle the rocks sticking out in front of the wave and the urchins and seashells covering the seafloor.
