That wave is definitely 3 times over head. You would also clear the rocks with no problem if you drop right there, but don't make the drop and you will be in serious trouble and in for a 30 minutes paddle/wash around the rocks and back to the beach a km down the road, if caught by the set. My favourite point break in the planet, only comparable to Uluwatu

You actually have to paddle between those rocks to reach that wave... pretty scary getting sucked through the channels.

bit random, but does anyone else remember that pokemon tv series episode when some surfer guy was waiting for a massive wave so he could ride and try to plant a flag on top of a rock?? very similar setup =Þ

That is one awesome looking photo, would love to catch a rail and catapult in to the monster rock in front. At least everyone else would laugh as I picked my teeth off the barnacles. Whoop.
