Hard to enter and go out the water when it's big! You really have to wait for the flat between two sets, and paddle hard to join the guys out there!
Really good wave, long and fast but take care of the tide...it could be risky to get of on the bad waves in front of the rocks! I guess that 6-8ft is the best size to surf this place, because the wave is already very long and fast and tube on the 2nd section (for my part I forget to do so on the 3rd). Experts would enjoy it till 12ft+.
Really nice place. Check the place twice a day, because who knows, you'll find it perfect and surf it on your own (only during the week off course!)

potholes - look out for ankle breaking potholes when you get in and out... broken ankles suck

is that where draculas is? - we surfed there and though it was called ships, we called it decievables becuase it looked 4ft from the cliff but was 6-8ft when you got out there! the trickiest entrance and exit we surfed in morocco - but we always got it alone! but boilers really does smoke too - bloody great wave and super fast. love the inside racetrack - its just mental but no shoulder! oof!
