Dangers

- Rips / undertow

 Additional Information

On bigger swells it’s a challenge by itself to get into the water over sharp lava rock. The main break has two sections, both of them very close to nasty rocks. The inside left is a bit less dangerous. THIS IS FOR EXPERTS ONLY! Respect the locals, even when they use a bodyboard.

Atmosphere

Most of us are better off by just watching. There is one local who really masters this place. He is very religious and absolutely crazy. Maybe that´s what you become when surfing this place regularly.

By I am a local!!!! , 25-03-2009

how often... - well to get a decent wave to ride is a nightmare.Not only in this spot but all along fuerteventura.Good for windsurf rubish for surf!!!

Dangerous - Dudes surf this break with care man, really you must have a death wish if your gona surf this break. only useually works when north shore is big and clean. its called suicides for a reason. The locals rarely surf it aswel so that says something!

By Matt , 29-06-2006

Heavy - This is the most sucky spot on Fuerte. in my humble opinion. The take off is a real fast elevator drop even when its small; a bigger board is a good idea. Half a dozen people is a crowd as the take off spot is very tight.
