From Vigo (Pontevedra) you drive in the highway to Bayona. In the south of Bayona, is a city called Santa Maria de Oya, at the left of this little bay you can see the wave breaking on rocks, at 150m from the coast. Is a big left, you must avoid a rock in front of you.

Mavericks? - I live near half moon bay. and this looks nothing like mavericks, one of the best paddle-in big waves of the world. i truly appreciate that everyone knows california breaks but you might consider trying them out before jumping to huge comparisons. I mean it does look technical, but the size and type of wave don't look similar to any extent.
