This spot is very similar to Comandancia (Tarragona), but Torrebank is more regular than the other surf spots of the zone, and the sandbar of the bottom don't moves too much.
The takeoff area is very concentrated and respect the few locals.
This is one of the best waves on Tarragona zone. His right wave is very regular and is not very crowded never. The sessions with one to four friends are the normaly here. Friendly atmosphere, but respect the locals.
Is my best meditrerranian spot!! Good rights, long rides and a lot of things wich are difficult to find in the mediterranean sea for a surfer.
