This occasionnal wave is a surprise in this region because it is a hollow tubular wave with no water. A good one ! Only very few locals know this wave and rarely surf it. It is pretty dangerous to surf it because of the rocks and the srong rips (the strongest of Europe 400 m after the spot !). Surf here at your own risk. If the wave is a right and a left, right and left never work at the same time due to the direction of the swell. It needs a BIG swell ans southern winds to start working.
The landscape is absolutely wonderful !

dommage - c'est extrêmemnt dommage que certains ne soient pas capables de tenir leur langue. Ce spot sélectif ne supporte pas la surpopulation.
