Vairao

Definitely one of Tahiti's best waves. Vairao is a perfect left-hander with a steep, hollow barrel at the take-off followed by a long wall for a few hundred metres. Whilst you do need to have a certain level of skill to surf this wave, it's not in the same league as Teahupo'o. Its best to get here by boat as it is a very long paddle from shore. This does seem to keep the crowds to a minimum though.
