Requiem in Pax Punta Paloma - yes, it only works a few days on a year but then the best waves are property of local (better) surfersdon´t miss that!thanks to pleople & internet to turn this paradise into a ultracrowed wave when it´s working-----------------------------------------------------Deacuerdo, tan sólo funciona unas cuantas veces al año pero las mejores olas son para los (mejores) surfers localesno lo olvides!gracias a la gente e internet por convertir este paraiso en una ola super petada cuando está funcionando

no locals - It is completely false that locals are a problem here. The real problem is that the spot doesnt run frecuently, only 10 or 15 days yearly. Only with big grounswell, soft offshore, this spot shows its real potencial.

Tarifa is great for windsurfers but........ - Yes there are waves here but you need to be ready for howling onshores too.
