Atmosphere

With the right conditions it's a nice wave but otherwise forget it, this spot gets messed up easily because of winds.

Sometimes may be a long paddle out since there is no channel and strong rips are common, take care.

Best season is in winter but don't miss it in summer, there are many hot girls on the sand.
