About Temae

Moorea also gets plenty of decent waves through the S swell season, and if it’s big enough, SE-SW lines will slip through the Chenal de Moorea then wrap around the eastern point near the airport. Temae hugs the coralline shelf, very close to shore, providing a righthand barrel spectacle on a par with Backdoor, but much longer. When it's on, which isn't often since it needs non-trade-winds, expect air drops into multiple caverns as it parallels the shoreline, getting shallower and uglier as it turns inside out.

There can be problems when surfing Temae because the locals covet this inconsistent right, so tread lightly and be sure of your abilities.
