take your everyday board plus a semigun is needed, a 6`8 or 7`0 for the biggest days. Parking is easy there is lots of restaurants where you can park.
Very relaxed, surf in the morning, get something to eat, rest, surf again and then hang out with the local surfers (mostly kids).
It is very powerful, demanding and will put you in the best physical shape you have ever been without going to the gym.
