Cloudbreak

When looking South from Tavarua Island Resort one can see flashes of white along the horizon. Cloudbreak in the local language means Thunder Reef and is a world-class left-hander that receives the full unhindered force of the Southern Hemisphere swells.

The wave itself is a thick grinding left hander, which is surfable on all tides. Cloudbreak is the most consistent wave in the area and can hold small to solid size swells between two to twenty feet. It can offer a day to day variety of perfect, spitting barrels or long playful lines.

There are general sections to the wave, The Point or Top, the Middle and the Inside or Shishkabobs. The first two sections generally offer the more forgiving, rippable waves with the final section offering some nice but shallow barrels.

On the largest of days Cloudbreak can break as one section, starting on a section of reef called the Ledge. Which is actually the outside of the inside section.

Being an open ocean reef break, there is little protection from the wind. However, fortunately Cloudbreak is offshore in the predominant Southeast trade winds.
