Atmosphere

Sharp Rocks appear sometimes out the water called Los Calvos, many people get injured here.
With the swell north the wave is short, but with the swell north-west the wave is medium-long, max 150 m
This spot is a big-wave and very very powerful, friends. I have seen people take-off with more than 6 m, sometimes service rescue help the crazy surfers. In the section called "los calvos" the wave is pipeline.

university of deusto - i will be attending the university of deusto this fall- does anyone know where the closest break is to this school?

Woww! - A heavy wave. When there are realy big waves and you wanted to drop in, you can see how the rip pull the water up to the lip and you will see the bottom. This is the time, when the three rocks appear out of the water."Los tres Calvos". They are called so, because they look like asses. If you fail the take off you will crash into these rocks. It is realy dangerous. If you go there, observe the locals and watch out how they drop in.Have some local friends in this area. They told me that it is the biggest wave on the whole spanish coast and it has a big tube but not very long. Had some amazing Tuberides there and a terrible wipe out, because there are a lot of big rocks everywhere.If there's a big swell, there are a lot of spots a few minutes around which can handle big swell. Some are like Menakoz, but the waves are longer, mushy and not barreling like Menaka. Be prepared and take youre gun!!!
