Talk to the locals to make a few friends, then when you've got 3-4 locals on your side, your basically a local yourself.
This break breaks about once to twice a month, but when it does, you should be waiting to get out there, cause it breaks for about 3-4 days a month, and watch for the rips and currents, they can be the difference between a good surf, and a tiring surf.
Great when it breaks
