The Break

Tiger Tail is a mellow short reef break with rights and lefts. When waves are small, they are great for beginners. Bigger waves begin to close out due to breaking in a small gap in the reef; these waves are ideal for intermediate surfers. Longboards, funboards, and SUPs are all good here. Consistency is year-round with mainly winter swells.
