 Additional Information

This spot is very dangerous: the wave is short, hollow and the water is very shallow. The take off is just at 4 m from the reef ! In fact only locals surf where as they can't go elsewhere easily.

- I surfed one of them: on the left side when facing the sea.It is was a nice small bowl in small conditions 1m-1.5m. It was awesome, as the wave is powerful and you have to avoid reefs rocks in some sections. I surfed it with locals very friendly. Better not to try alone, water is not deep, and reef is very close. Acess is quite easy.

very dangerous wave - i used to live just in front of this reef and could surf it everyday.In fact there are two surf spots on this reef:one that works almost all year long and another one that works only by by big north swell.Both are really good waves but very dangerous!!
