- "Locals only" do you know how stupid, immature and mincy you canary island surfers sound when you come out with this shite?!!

compartan cabrones - buena ola, pero mucha tosca por el fondo, cuidado al salir. Los locales son buena gente... si no les saltas olas

THE BEST!!!! - I live in Gran Canaria,near of this wave. The submit photo is a small wave, because when La Guancha is "big", is a heavy perfect wave. VIVA GÁLDAR!!!!!!ONLY LOCALS
