 Additional Information

It breaks closely together of the border in high water with the sea entering of the south. Although you can surfear its right, is the left the one that better breaks, very powerful and tubera. It holds the days of North wind well although he is better to surfear it in the days that are glassy. There are days in which the north is completely plate but that same day can here be out of phase, something that happens frequently in summer.

Sick spot... - This wave is sick, have surfed it a few times in decent conditions. Pretty crowded when it's good, respect the locals. Entrance and exit can be sketchy but once you're getting barreled you won't care! Also a crazy shorebreak to the West in front of the travellers camp never seen anyone in there, and there's probably a reason for that!
