Atmosphere

Average, sometimes bad water quality (actually, always). The crowd sets in usually around 9:30-10:00am on weekends.
When it gets between 1,5 an 2,5 meters, with no North wind (which is the usual case, unfortunately )it can get absolutly tubular, classic and perfect. You just have to surf it on the right day
If you surf it on a big day and you will see that it is not for all surfers and it can be powerful...
