About Padang-Padang Rights

The first section can have a bit of life, and allow the better surfers to put in a turn or a cutback, and then it starts to fade back giving the long-boarders or beginners a great ride into the channel. There are also some fun lefts to be had off the peak, back towards the reef when its small.
