there is a parking near the beach from where you must paddle to the spot
it´s magic. when it´s perfect you can surf waves longer than 1km whith several tube sections.
it breaks well only a few days per year so eberybody is very nervous in the wather.
it´s the longer wave I have ever surfed and I think it´s one of the longer waves of the world.

Size - I don´t know if the people who left messages here have surfed this Spot.
This wave never will be bigger than 2 meters or something more (6-8 feet). There are no locals. Locals can´t exist in a wave that breaks 15 days a year (30 in a good year like someone else had said).

- But you need a swell around this size to up to begin breaking.With a smaller swell it doesn´t break

Pejinpower - The longest wave in Europe when it is on. It only breaks 30 times a year (in a good year), only in deep winter: December to March. It needs huge swell and extreme low tides. the locals are stupid but it does not matter, you have to fight with the currents not with them.
