 Additional Information

Atmosphere

Despite the crowds it´s got a really nice atmosphere if you respect the locals they´ll treat you good and let you have a share of the waves. The spot picks up the smallest swell so it´s a good option if nothing else works.

General

The waves doesn´t get any better, the water is so clear that you can see to the bottom. Deffinetly worth a try. The scenery is awesome with mountains dropping straight into the ocean around you.
