Finnimas might end up being the reason you pack an extra duplicate board . . . or two. Despite the exposed reef, the barrels at Finnimas keep surfers coming back for more. Like Malik’s, this lefthand wave is also a little “finicky,” though that often results in a righthand wave breaking across the nearby pass, so watch for that. The left really needs a north or northeast wind to break properly, but it can handle northwest breeze if the breeze isn’t too heavy. The wave tends to be on the smaller side, ranging from 2-10 feet, typically reacting well with a southeast or even southwest swell. Since it is so shallow, you want to make sure the conditions are right and the tide isn’t too low.
