General

great wave, fast, hollow, also very shallow on sand bottom. The way the wave's peeling looks like it's breaking on reef. Bring a semigun to get enough speed for a good take off and be able to follow the wave...then full speed is requiered to make it..add turbo to your surfing!!

Réponse à un anonyme - Je suis tout à fait d'accord...Il est important de préserver les secrets spots car il est le refuge des locals pour le bien de tous alors arrêtez de balancer les trésors! Et de toute façon, les vrais surfeurs trouverons les bons spots!

current - always strong current.
Impossible to be right placed for the take off.
So, verry hard. Paddling is the only thing to do here...

You're an asshole ! - Don't you think we can keep some secret ?C'est pas très malin de décrire ce spot... déjà il est dangereux a cause du courant et il faut un minimum de niveau pour y aller...alors la prochaine fois réfléchis a deux fois avant de devoiler un tel spot blaireau
