- Man-made danger (buoys etc..)
Don´t try it if there is nobody locals.It coud be dangerous!!
Perfect to bodyboarders!!
Many surfers has broken his surfboards at this heavy spot.
Take care to get off.
Clean water,a power perfect right-tube with a few people(maybe some locals) around and inside the spot. Some days ( with midle size) looks like an Indonesian wave.
That´s the most powerfull tube (with El Confital) that exist in the island.

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
