 Additional Information

This is the most consistant wave and cops more swell than anywhere at Panaitan. It is a soft, mushy wave....but can be long and with enough push to rip good turns. A fishey high-bred board is best and get ready for long paddles. Great place to feel out your equipment.

Atmosphere

If it's all you get on your Panaitan trip, you'll curse it and write it off. If it's something that you're surfing between epic days at the heavier waves, you'll love it and consider it therapy. Basically, can be your best friend or your worst enemy....just like One Palm, but on the opposite end of the spectrum.

General

Thank God it's there, as it keeps people sane through the flat days! It actually is really important to have it for lesser competent surfers that insist on going to Panaitan on boat trips, but find out everything else is out of their league. Is quite fun for everyone else too, as it mixes it up from just peddle to the metal barrel riding. Great for your surfing!!!
