Good spot but streams are very strong! But there are lifeguards in summer.the best period is autumn.
The atmosphere is cool, take it easy with locals.
In summer, it's very crowded.
it's a good spot for everybody!

I liked it - Surfed here during August 09, flat at first but slowly got bigger until it was experts only (which doesn't include me!). Nice regular swell, best with tide going out, warm water, good vibe.
