About Jimmies Left

Jimmies Left is a heavy left hander breaking over shallow coral, and needs a higher tide to make this wave safe enough to surf. You can expect heavy ledging waves that barrel on take off and barrel relentlessly over the shallow reef until it closes out on the dry end section. Not a wave for the faint of heart and fickle at best. This wave is remote so be sure to take care when surfing here!

Best Conditions for Jimmies Left

Jimmies Left works best with a moderate to large S – SW swell and higher tides to cover the reef. It is offshore in SE – E winds making it offshore in the dry season trade winds.

Getting in and out at Jimmies Left
