 Additional Information

you can not straighten out of the drop of this wave on most size days (if its bigger, it breaks clear of the headland) and you have to be pretty quick even though its sweden and usually small, the rocks are right inside. But, if you make the drop and pull in, then it is one of the few places where you can get barreled here.

Atmosphere

its a beautiful beach with an obvious wave, if you are lucky the wind will be blowing so hard on a not direct angle and then the wave can be clean. the locals are real scared of this place turning into a version of åsa so might not be too friendly about you showing up, so never bring a camera and don't give out directions to the spot.they will know its you

General

do not show up with a crowd here, i was shown this place by an american surfer a few years back, it cannot hold alot of people and you can't see your car from the break. if you do show up, you may need to promise the other surfers not to give directions to the spot, they will ask you how you found it. it's also close to a city so there is an overcrowding potential. if you do show up though, just don't drop in, or be in the way and you should be fine, you have every right to surf that spots especially because it is a law in sweden called 'allemänsrätten' which means the land is everyones.

I understand u okes wanna keep it a secret, i wont tell and i only intend to visit maybe a handfull of times. I know of a pretty groovy spot down here i can tell about, also barrels, i dont think anyone knows of it, can only get there by boat. Ill buy the first round of beers for directions, feel free to email me.Jono

Calisurfer - that ain't no beachbreak, that wave is freakin' scary, not big, just shallow, don't think the locals need to be too worried, most peops won't be able to surf it

- you're crazy if you say there isn't room for manoevers on that wave, the left lets you get tubed, and the shoulder has room for a cutback, if the last part closes out you have a nice place for a foamy rebount, air, floater or whatever, it's definitely a more performance orientated wave than Åsa!
