This beach doesn't work in a very usual way, but when it works, you will never forget the session. All the waves are like the one of the picture.

- Is very rare that this wave see this wave broking. When breaks well, all the next beaches are with bigger weight and power. Is not good for surf, better for bodyboard because you ride with low bottom and the crash would be big.

samil - When it gets big,the waves are a bit powerful.At low tide yo can get your ride with only 30 cm of water under you,but waves work well in middle and up tide.
