About Majanicho

There is a small, natural harbour here protected by two reef-lined headlands. A long righthander peels along the eastern edge of the channel, peaking way out back, and rolling through as a long, fat wall. On larger swells it can connect through to the inside. When mellow, there will be an intense crowd of SUPers, longboarders and beginners swarming the line-up. There is also a low tide left hand reef close by that gets hollow and tasty in big swells. Exposed to wind so best on a medium, clean groundswell.
