Sick wave , fast take off , barrel from start to finish,, west swell wrap around the point but it'll work better on a strong southerly. Have seen photos of it holding four times over-head, seriously shallow at low-tide but still surfable, it hits a ledge at high tide and seems to stop working though i didnt surf it over 6-8ft.
Lots of large urchins and a couple of unfreindly spaniards at the weekend.
It depends if there are any other people out , i supose the atmosphere is what you make of it, but its a bit like surfing on the moon when theres no0one else around.
Its fucking sick, im only sorry i dont have the brain capacity to send you the photos i have of the place , pretty computer illiterate.

absolute classic right barrel - have to say saw this wave 7 years ago with a couple of german soul searches riding an awesome right hand barrel in the middle of nowhere.....went back last week (now that my surf is up to scratch) and had the pleasure of awesome little barreling waves, when the swell is right it is super consistant barreling offshore perfect right..!..!

Fantastic - Best surf I've had in Fuerta at this spot, no crowds either, just a few locals which I found were reasonably friendly. Does Salinas mean tomatoes in spanish?

Best waves in Fuey - Spent 2 days down here on a big NW swell .There are 4 reef break down here. All are very good and are secert. Just keep driving toward the light house.Why am I exposing secrect waves ? - because of the locals !. A heavy gang who threw rocks at a lone surfer - tossers .These are the best waves on the island and are nearly always offshore .
