The Northern Reef Passes

When the conditions are right we'll pack everyone up and head off towards Efaty and Mangily to surf the reef passes which are situated a couple of km's off the beach. You'll be staying in beachfront bungalows with double bed, shower and toilet with continental breakfast provided every morning. Mangily is a little Vezo fishing village that has become somewhat commercialised but still remains pretty much laid back and a nice place to hang. Plenty of cheap restaurants around too and you can even get the local fisherman to cook you grilled lobster on the beach for a round five bucks.

There are two main breaks that we can surf here. The first is called the right and the other is called the left lol. They are both reef passes and can absolutely go off on their day. Probably best in the 5-6ft range the right can handle up to a solid 10ft if the swell is clean and the right direction. The left although less consistent can get really good too if the conditions are right. When the trades kick in its chill out time and no shortage of little rasta bars around to help you relax in style! We'll hang here as long as the swell does then head back to Tulear which is about an hour away by 4WD.
