Go to the rock island spot and from the beach walk to the delfinarium, when you see two vertical metal tubes(it's used in the delfinarium to change the water) you'll also see the two peaks close to them.

This is one of shorboarder favorites spots, beacuse the nearly rock island is the spot of lonboarder, and waves in this spot are more power and hollow than rock island but shorter.
This spot can be very dangerous with a north swell, and can get to 2,5 m with a very low bottom, when is so big you can't surf there because the sea is to active, and you could surf the smaller spot, the lion's cage(that is about 1,5m when outside is so big, but is fucking dangerous!).
I hurt myself in this spot last year (not here, for exactly in the lion's cage), and so friends of mine decide to call this spot devil's break in the honor of my big accident(my board impact on the bottom and I faul to a fin, and cut my leg... Terrible experience...) Is not easy to surf this wave beacuse is very fast, steep and power so take a little bit of experience before come here.
The nearst spot, rock island it can be a very good spot, but usually is a spot for longboarders. When rock island is in a small size the waves ar very sloffy and slow and if this spot work, you'll can surf a short but very powerful and superfast wave. Sometimes there can be also some tubing waves... If it work it can be the best for shortboarders. Be careful when the sea is big and the swell come from north east, because it can be very dangerous.
I'm a local of this spot, and when it work we are just 5 or 6 persons with the shortboard. We don't do localism but we don't like when longboarders come here...
This is my favourite spot, because is the most adrenalinic spot in the town. The only problem is that the waves are usually short.
But I think that for shortboard this is the best spot here.

devils break/lion's cage - Soltanto un mentecatto poteva descrivere questo spot con tali
By non comitato surfisti riminesi :) , 18-11-2004
!!!! - "I paletti" o "devil's break" non è uno spot. é come qualunque secca vicino a i moli delle barche per tutta la spiaggia a sud el rock island. Il comitato di surfisti riminesi NON ESISTE quindi era una cazzata.. come la recensione dello spot del resto."I paletti" or "devil's break" is not a surfing spot. It's just like any sandbar along the beach in the south side of rimini. Take it easy bro and be cool!!
