About Sliding Rock

Sliding Rock is a thick, heavy left that uncoils over a nasty lava platform near the southern tip of the island. Unusually, it is super-exposed to swell, jacking wave heights, yet it can handle plenty of ESE trade wind. Rights work on small W swells, which can close-out the lefts and the rip-torn paddling channel. Rides are pretty long compared to the majority of short sucky ledges but favour high tides.

Absolutely scary at size with exposed reef and gnarly rocks to avoid on entry/exit. Close by is Fagatele Bay Sanctuary Marine Reserve, a hotspot for divers and all nature lovers.
