 Additional Information

Crans (pronounced 'Crons') when the swell is there to make it work is a hollow wave breaking hard on a shallow bottom. Many of the waves will seem to close out but those who know it will pick the better waves and get some nice tube rides. Just sit and watch where the guys are sitting and taking off.

Atmosphere

It's a great spot to surf. If you persist after a few crashes on take off you will have some really good waves. It's the place if you want to learn to handle late take offs. Body boarders have a ball when it's small.

General

It's a great spot. It will have some days when it produces some fantastic tubes. It's a bit heavy though and I've snapped a board just duckdiving when a big one broke on my back so be ready if it's over 4 foot. It can bounce you off the bottom as well.
