Piscenas & K16 Surf Shop Rock - Dude you are indeed thinking of the satallite K16 surf shop near Piscenas (pool)nr Las Americas/Hotel Conquistador.Spent the last week of May and first week June there. Yup the reef was scary at first but the surf chicks @ K16 had lots of info where, when, and when not to surf that stretch. They're ballsy surfers with friendly attitude.Water in June (22 deg) was noticably warmer than May (19-21). Full moon gave depth to the reef and at highs you didn't have to worry much about reef close in.It was busy at weekends but not Uber Zoo like. If you know your lingo(a bit)and show respect you should have no problemo with locales. I did ok.May-June is between breaks. ie Fitenya just around the headland PS III and Spanish left I was told. Did have a run of flat days those two weeks but when it worked. Hoo eee. Only had one Epic day realy 5ft+ in 14 days.Did ok in boardies and a longsleave rasher but would take a wettie next time for reef protection and to last longer in the early morning waters.Disclaimer: This was my local break for 14 days holiday what it's like for the rest of the year I cant say.

Help - I visited Las Americas last week (8th oct) to do some surfing and ended up kissing the reef, after a couple of stitches and a few bandagesi'm fine thanks to some very kind Canarians from a Surf Shop. i can't remember the name of it. the Shop was by Burger King (not K16) the other side. does anyone know the name of it as i would like to send them a thank you email. Plus they have some awesome pics of my cuts!!
