 Additional Information

The spot is excellent. The beach has several breaks:
- On the left, you'll find a long wave.
- In the middle of the beach, there is a channel which sometimes helps you to get out beyond the break. Long lefts and rights. Pretty interesting. At low tides, a few rocks appear.
- On the right of the beach, at low tide and with a good swell (1.5 m minimum), there is a hollow, fast right along the cliff.
It works even if the wind is North East. At high tide, it works only with a big swell.

Atmosphere

A lot of locals, and the level is high. Gets crowded when waves are good.

Los locos alone ! - Maybe the spanish surfers doesn't like to wake up early : I stayed alone in the water with a very good los locos for me alone. I even passed a aerial... Photos don't show the quality : I just took to bad photos and ran to t

Good onshore waves - Los locos is a very good spot with a strong localism. I kept a low profile and got those famous waves : hollow right or left, short but intense. I came here 10 years before with no surfboard ! So this was my revenge. The place is just beautifu

Sunday Afternoon, New board - First time at los locos with new board. Yellow flag flying. Learned how to balance myself on the board, paddle out beyond break zone and break through waves. Managed to get to my knees a couple of times. As this is only my second day with a full si

me gusta los locos (like the playa) - yo voy a veranear todos los años y esta muy bien el agua limpia i ai olas muy altas y potentes hay muchas veces bandera roja y amarilla pero siempre se puede entrar hasta con paipo (resumen el mejor lugar de veraneo)

los locals - Found it a bit overrated. We ended up heading up the coast every day to San Vincente. At least there the waves were deserted....the locals have some serious attitude, and the wave wasn´t great (closeouts for the most part). I would love to ´do´this coast in the autumn when some serious swell hits as there are so many sheltered spots that need a big swell to get going. By the way, I can recommend The Big Blue Surf Guide to Spain - very useful.

los locos - I've surfed there 3 years running when traveling across the north coast. It's always more crowded every year. The waves are fairly nice there, but it's hard work getting any of the good ones because the locals are all over them. We camped in the campsite in suances, the guy who runs it was really helpful and friendly.
