Tuason Point

Surf Skill: Advanced - Expert
Break: Left

Tuason Point is another outstanding surf spot that offers seriously heavy, powerful and hard breaking waves over shallow reef.  A point break that is best at high tide -- low tide can be very dangerous due to shallow areas. Paddling out is easy but we aware of sharp rocks when entering and exiting the water.

Jacking Horse

Surf Skill: Beginner - Advanced
Break: Right

Jacking Horse gets its name from waves that jack at the peak, smashing into the reef. It is best surfed from mid to high tide. Not nearly as big as Cloud 9 or Quicksilver but it can deliver long, quality right-handed waves which make it a favorite spot for advanced longboarders despite the strong current.
