You can't beat hashs for location, accommodation, or service when at sorake. Hash makes you a part of his family while you're there and there's a reason people staying at other places come to eat and drink in the bar there. It's easily the best view of the wave.

While the point gets most of the surfers happy, it´s Indicators that will challenge your skills. This wave breaks hard on dry reef and is only surfed by highly talented surfers when the conditions allow. When it´s on its a massive top to bottom barrel without the crowds of the point.
