bad description - Hello,I dont know who made this spot description but he might be silly :))I think that there are many mistakes. First, you don't need to be pros or kamikazes to surf this wave : even if there are rocks, the wave isn't so dangerous. Moreover the wave quality isn't regional classic, as you can see from the photo, it is not big and doesn't break very well. I don't know what does "regular" mean for the frequency but in my opinion, this wave rarely breaks (between 10 and 20 times a year).There are many other errors but I think I'd better stop here. I can't believe it.
