Not quite as viscous as the bloodthirsty right down the reef, Rags Left was one of the losers in the reef-rising earthquakes of recent times. It used to reel off perfectly down the front of the reef, but now it is prone to hideous boils and churning shallow fingers of coral. The last 100m is often the most approachable section and needs 6ft faces to clear the slabby corner section as the wave refracts round Pitojetsabeu Island and starts a whole new mellower section. Up the top of the reef, perfection and ugly shut-downs happily co-exist and experts will need an air-drop, trusty pintail and a gung ho attitude to handle the big days. Way less consistent than Thunders and prefers SW swell at mid tide.
