It's a hot dog surfing wave, that breaks when big swell hits the coast.It's a fun wave with diferent sections.The bigger the swell the longer the wave is.The option for who don't want to surf big and waves
It's very crowded, with kids, bboarders, longboarders and surfers.But the wave can be very good, especially the first session, near the cannons of the fort.It can be long, and have about 5 feet waves
It's a fun spot, a very good option when the surf goes out of control in the other spots.The best tide is the lowest as possible

few times a year only - works with BIG SE and E swells. Good sign is when Arpoador is closing out beyond the rocks. I live nearby and surf it at most 2-4 times a year. usually much better at low tide. Huge crowd of longboarders when firing, including many local pros. Fight for your life.
