Well, like many others surfers of Getxo and Sopelana, i born in the surf at that wave. My favorite. Works very well, with a lot of speed and big drops on the range betwen 2,5 and 3 m.

?Donde esta es los mensos de Pais Vasco? - What u 'hard case' local boys do not get is there have been many more surfers around the world that were surfing waves as big as u ever have & they did so alone coz it was long b-4 ANY of these "los Payasos" were born! Mother ocean will take care of ALL these 'little locals' 1 at a time; NOTHING EVER CHANGES when it comes right down 2 that 'little' fact BOYS!!!

To all aggressive locals - Don't ever leave your village ever. If no one is welcome at your place than you're not welcome anywhere either. Stay there for the rest of your live, never come out. You're a guiri yourself when you surf the spot of the next village. Or maybe you should move, cause you wanna be so damned cool and aggressive. Well move to south central LA, the Banlieus of Paris or to any Brazilian favela. Real tough people will eat you alive.Guiris' tax money is invested in your country through eu financing while pulling their own weight, don't forget that!!!!!!If you haven't bought the beach, it's not yours!!!!!!

I imagine it could be tough - I've been surfing la salvaje a couple of years now and I haven't come accross any problems with anyone, maybe because I am now accepted, I am not sure.At the end of the day it doesn't matter where you go you will always come across a** holes and beach kings, part of life, just got to try and avoid it.Besides that, when it's on la salvaje is one of the best beaches around and the right hander is really something special.
