Avatoru Pass, RangiroaEdit Spot
Great spot if you have the time, money or Yacht to get there.
Incredibly beautiful, too, but...there are more sharks in these waters than I have ever seen ANYWHERE...granted, they are mostly white and black tips, mostly, but thick as fleas
Tons of bodyboarders when school is out, nobody taking off at the peak though.
This spot is heavy, make sure you are an experienced rider, large sucking barrels off the reef, make sure you have first aid with you.
Rangiroa, Northern Atoll. Must have boat access or expensive flight from Tahiti
