You follow signs towards the Natural Bridge and make a left on a dirt road (don't worry, the area has no trees) and head towards the old Gold Mine Ruins. Pass the ruins and following the dirt road along the rocky shore. You will pass one little bay which is usually a good indicator of how the spot will be. Keep going till you come to a rocky beach with a little natural bridge. Park close the bridge and go surfing.

This is an easy wave to surf and has both a fun right and left. The wave is not powerful and is quite slow. However, if it gets above 5 feet or so, it turns into a totall rippable wave with good sections. Line up with the edges of the bay to surf the right or lefts. Don't get caught on the left side of the bay or you'll be into the rocks. Respect the locals and have fun. Surf in the late afternoons for best conditions (less wind).
Atmosphere is cool. Localism is catching on but in a very relaxed way. The Aruban people are the friendliest people in the world and will welcome you to the break if you're not a dick to them.
It's where I learned to surf and it's a fun place to surf and hang with the locals. Make sure you say hi to Jeffrey, Xenon, Jeremy, and the other localz.

step 2: don't go in the water
