In Playa de Las Americas 150 meters south of Hooters. Look for the man made tide pool and the large volcanic rock (El Dedo) sticking up 3 meters in the air.

This is a decent wave with a mellow vibe. It has a short ledgey left and a longer wally right. When the waves are big and the planets align the right can connect with an inside section that is duly named Jefferys.
I give this wave a 4.5, 6 on its best day. 10 would be Jefferys bay in S.A.
In General this is the non locals (non native) wave. Just about everybody that surfs here is relaxed. This is due to the other spots being highly localized. It is Not the best wave in the area but will be less crowded and less competetive.
