best ever - First of all I´ve travell all around the world and I cant belive this is not a 5* wave in your rate. For me is the best bodyboard wave in Europe, and for sure in the top 5 of the world Locals must be respect and you will get respect of them. Any way this isn´t a wave for every one, is probably as well as the best wave in europe the most dangerous... Good luck
