Author anonymus, comment anonymus - It's easy to criticize and hide the name, "Anonymous, 2007-06-28 11:45:22". Also if a new spot is entered, it should only be possible with a published name. What are You afraid of? We don't live behind the Iron Curtain!

- it doesn't matter if it's posted here or not, for a travelling surfer to score it chances are slim. you need a boat and right conditions for that wave which won't happen daily basis. it gets blown out easily and you don't want to surf a wave like that when it's too windy. also, if you want it bad and are ready to paddle there, then be ready to take a long, long swim back if you break your board, because wave like that wants to break boards, not to mention bodies and bones. don't go alone.but there are plenty of other spots you shouldn't post here, especially if the poster lives in germany or holland and wants to tell everyone about the great spot he "found" in france or somewhere else. that's a big no no.
