 Additional Information

This is a fast, short and intense wave. Local knowledge of the bottom helps as there are a lot of large sharp rocks on entry and exit. The paddle out is easy. There is a large ledge of volcanic rocks in front of the break so make sure you pull out of the wave before it becomes to shallow or your going to get cut!!

Atmosphere

This spot is known for its heavy localism. I've never found any of the Spanish that bad, but other poeple have giving shocking reports of bad attitude. I really thinks it's down to how much effort you make in the water to "fit in" - Try speaking Spanish - even if its just a few words - mingle with the Spanish sufers, and don't drop in on anyone! First and foremost, don't be intimidated! There only human and most of the big mouths are about 15 years old!! - I've met some very friendly people here... Saying this, the standard of the local surfers is very high, so unless you are of a high standard, you won't really get many waves. As there is only one peak it can become very crowded when it's good. I would suggest surfing Billboards, or one of the other local breaks, which in my opinion are a lot more fun!!

General

It's a great wave if you like steep, intense rides, which can be spoilt by a bad atmosphere, and large crowds...

- Have spent many many hours surfing this spot, and theres no doubt it's seriously good. Some of the best lefts I've surfed and some huge pits! I've only experienced a handful of localism issues, on the whole, if it's firing, I always find the atmosphere pretty good. Standard of locals is very high, great to watch and learn about the break..!
