The accesses to the wave are really complicated, you have to drive to Lemoiz and follow the BI-2120 road in direction to Bakio. While you go on the road next to the seaside, you´ll see what it was supposed to be the first Nuclear Power Station in the Basque Country, which fortunately didn´t start working after peoples claims and pressures. The wave is next to the Power Station, you have to find the way to go down the rocks the best way you can. It´s easier to go into the water, the big problem comes when you wanna go out. Another possibility is to take a boat, which is the one I advise you.

The wave is fast and powerfull, It´s really hollow, I´ve seen photos that remind me Shark Island but going left. This wave is mainly for bodyboarders, cos it´s quite difficult for surfers to make the take off on a big day.
It´s the perfect spot, for those bodyboarders that love sucky waves and powerfull lips to make mental tricks.

Great Looking wave - When I went out there last Nov. I remember locals telling about this wave, from the cliff it looked great but I couldnt find a way down and since I was on my own thought I better not try. Anyways Im coming back this dec so Ill have another go.
