Rangiroa Atoll

Rangiroa is an island in the Tuamotu Archipelago in French Polynesia. Situated off the Northern tip of Avatoru is a quality right-hander that has a huge variety of moods. At three foot it's a nice playful wave that reels at a perfect pace around the reef. Once it gets above six foot, it gets very heavy as large barrels dredge of the shallow reef. 

Don't be fooled by the local kids running around on the reef. It is extremely sharp and booties come highly recommended.
