The wave is a powerful reef break, pitching over shallow live coral. Generally its a right, although as with many reefs it pitches both ways, with the left being shorter and equally hollow. When Cloud Nine gets crowded head down to Jacking Horses (300m paddle)

Atmosphere

Hollow, Powerful and Superfast - as it sucks back off the coral grab your courage with both hands and give it your best. If you don't hesitate you'll get the wave of your life. This wave breaks boards and bones - you have been warned.

General

Amongst the top reef breaks in the world, behind Teahupoo, Backdoor and Pipeline... but not far behind!
