Only for Pro-surfers! Breaks only on huge swells. Very rare wave, breaks over a big and flat rock. Park the car in the Sheraton´s Hotel.
One of the best spots in the city, very terrifying.

Stolen Pics?? - Hey mister, if you don't believe better come check with your own eyes...because i guarantee all the pictures are from the spot, i've seen it breaking many times and it's pretty sick!!

Wave of death = wave of shit. - Stop stealing pics of shipsterns and shark island in Australia and putting them on here. Another pic has been stolen from South Africa. The wave looks sic but it cant be all that good if you have to steal other spots pics for it.

Wave of death - This is not a wave....it is a wall of death. Thats some insane shit right there. If I had to die, that would be the place to do it. That wave is a kick ass way of being remembered.
