General

It's a standard wave. With the same conditions you could surf better spots but here you never find a crowded day!

alfar rocks - hey this is a mesage about this break and the town (alfar) this break is probably not the best in quality whith the same swell you could probably surf better in chapa or paloma but the vibe in the area is amazing the hood is great, and you are very close to the best brakes in the south : horizonte ,diva ,mariano,chapa cruz del sur,la paloma, serena ,and when is small we always have the sorey of alfar, anyway if you guys are by this area enjoy the surf or have beer in abracadabra bar or just watch the hottest girls in the beach !!!
