Located off Matavu, Vesi Passage is a left-hander worthy of top-quality status when working. Has raw power like the other Fijian reef passes facing South and offers up a great barrel when the conditions line up. Unfortunately, the prevailing southeasterly trades winds batter the exposed southeastern coasts and so gets blow out easily. The waves here can be challenging and break for up to 200 meters over a coral reef.
