Atmosphere

this can be a classic spot on its day, but crowds and shifting sand banks take a b it away from it. san seb is a great place though for partying, so if youre going that way be sure to check it out, and spend some time there. chances are if its not in summer you'll be rewarded with great waves

Attention beaucoup de vols sur la plage - Je suis allé surfer à Playa de Gros au mois de décembre par une belle journée ensoleillée des vagues de 1 à 1,20 m offshore 20 degrés à l extèrieur, bonne session, quand j'ai aperçu 2 personnes s échapant avec mes affaires sur le dos. Le temps que je sorte de l'eau, il était trop tard. Je suis rentré à bordeaux (plus de 200 Kms) en combinaison. Alors si vous allés surfer là-bas, changez vous à la voiture et gardez votre clef.
