General

Valdoviño is one of the most dangerous beachs in the region due to REALLY BAD RIPS.(when over 5ft) You may find yourself taking a tour up the Galician coastline if you surf the N end. Headland, past hotel up the coast offers excellent view of unsurfable right hander. Have seen it at 8 metres. Biggest wave I have ever seen!!!
Have seen N end of beach 12ft+ and S end beside lighthouse is a nice 4ft. THE place to go when its huge(nearly all the time in Winter)

Roman solo - Smallest surf in days. Only Roman went in, as the rest of us decide to wait for the evening arrival of the swell. But he had fun, nonetheless.

- midtide out-going. Not bad! Fun rights, and a friendlier left (also mushy) for the beginners nearer the island.  I went out with Flo, his second session of the day. And he actually went out for a 3rd. Who else had 3 surfs today... um...

seeker surf camp is on this beach - I love it, the boys cook up a good meal and we wake up overlooking the break. Sometime a bit big but the area has good options for different wind. See ya!
