really good but crowded wave - I don't understand how the locals can go surfing everyday, at every hour..maybe there's too much unemployment in Lanzarote. ^^
Anyway a perfect wave for bodyboarding ,powerful and bowly.

loving la santa - having had a nasty experience there in the late eighties and praying to god that i would never return if he managed to get me back to dry land i avoided la santa for many years however a break this good is impossible to avoid forever.the right known as morro negro is a great wave,breaks in about seven foot of water over a smooth reef,not the nasty jagged volcanic variety that you can encounter in lanz,never had any aggro from locals this side of the bay.the left is a diffrent deal,its a heavy bowl wave breaking over shallow reef,i tried to pull out of a wave here and it threw me down like a rag doll,having said that you can get some wicked barrels here and yes its true the locals dont like any outsider surfing this break but if you get there eary and its either empty or just one or two in the water you will be fine,they dont act so brave when not heavilly outnumbering you but its still better to park by the right and paddle over.just along from the left in front of the town is quemou which rarelly works but when it does is a huge monster which breaks straight onto the reef and is mainly a left but i have seen gary elkerton going right on it,not sure what the locals are like here as i have never had the balls to surf it.theres a couple of surf shops in the town notably sefons but if the waves are good for longboarding you can gurantee he wont be open.there also used to be a cool surf bar calle garoe run by a uruguyan called steve.staying in famara for a week in early feb so will be driving over a couple of times and seeing if i can get my mate scot to sample la santas charm,adios,geordie pete

Hazards at la santa - Apart from the aggressive locals (who have backed down from limited experiece) one hazard in heavy swell+wind is a rip running out of the inlet on the right hand side looking out to sea. I had to rescue a grom who was being pushed out to heavy seas whilst locals standing on the shore (with no other surfer in the water due to obvious hazard) watched him get in without stopping him/helping him. So I would deinately recommend as always looking at the spot for some time before getting in.
