 Additional Information

This spot is basically, a perfect triangle of reef, which gets covered by sand on high tide. Perfect and long right and left.I've already surfed there many times, it only works with 1.5m minimum, the wind must be offshore during a few days, are even does not blow, with low tideIt's like surfing on corals, you must wear boots, some guys surf with a helmet, because there isa big rock in the middle. You can see it till the tide has not got low.To get in , you must sit on the rocks and jump like on corals in Canarias betwenn two sets.A wave with different sections during 300m on good days (not joking). The first one is slow, very good for longboards, to make big cut back, you must stay in the curl, wich is quick difficult. Then ,if you have a shortboard you must pump to get the other section, very fast and hollow;you must be very careful with the rocks that is out on your left and don't fall. It ist he best one.Third section, slow and smaller as well, then the last one: it gets bigger, there is 1 m of water over the rocks only, very fast with tubes. You have got a current that sucks a lot on 50cm of water, if you don't have boots, you won't be able to resist.At the end of the wave, I though about all this fucking beachbreaks I had been surfing for years, whereas here was a perfect wave, with different feelings, and few people, it's the best wave in Andalucia.You really can improve your surf on one wave and make tricks and carvs you've never done before, just because this wave breaks as if it was made by a machine.But it does not work very often, maybe fives times in a year!People come from malaga to surf it.I

Atmosphere

few american surfers from the Rota Naval Air Base, and the rest spanish. Good atmosphere but not a lot of surfing level.

General

This area doesn´t get very big swells, but when it breaks it is probably one of the most perfect waves in the peninsula.

The wave is good and funny - Calita is good also is fun for surf and body. I am go to there a times and have surfing very much. Person in water is nice and waves is funny. I rip super hard and do mammoth, skate-inspired airs.
