no se estresen - tranquilos muchachos, está claro que nunca serán un destino masivo de surf.... aunque se nota que les gustaria....

To all locals - Hi everybody!I´d like to say to all local people, who are angry about the detection of THEIR SECRET SPOTS that the planet including the water isn´t belongig to a small elitary group of people, and never will be. It´s belonging to all mankind, and ever will be.Hola todos!Queria decir a toda la gente local que están enfadadas sobre el descubrimiento de SUS SECRETOS SITIOS, que el planeta inlcluso el agua no es la sola propiedad de un grupo de gente elista, y nunca será. Es propiedad de toda la gente, y siempre será.
