The great thing about sunsets is that it is a lot more forgiving than many other big wave sites. When you wipe, it drills you and carries you for a few hundred meters, but then you pop up all safe and sound in the channel where the wave starts reforming. All you got to do is hold your breath for about 45 seconds and take the washing machine. There are no rocks or coral or anything like that to worry about - its all very deep.
