 Additional Information

Located inside the rivermouth/harbour of Bilbao, this spot only works on very strong NW swells, when everywhere else such as Sopelana, La Salvaje and Aizkorri are maxed out and stormy. Beware of objects such as driftwood and some harbour refuse floating around, and have a really good shower after you come out of the water.
