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

By anonymous , 10-11-2005

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.
