Atmosphere

Here is where me and my pals actually started surfing. It's not a world class wave of course, but I learned much... The hollow drops of lighthouse helped me a lot with my take off techniques.

General

If you don't mind the tons of plastic bags on the shore and dead bodies floating in the lineup, you could enjoy this spot.
