ask locals for the paddle out : there's only one way, with a 15 meters section in REALLY shallow water to access to the waves.
a really nice spot with fun waves, that can become super hollow and powerfull when the swell gets big.
waves for everyone depending on the size, a beautifull beach for the girlfiend that waits, and even if locals don't like bad manners from newcommers, the atmosphere is cool in the water.
