Atmosphere

You can talk with the people they are friendly.
+
Close do Arpoador, it´s an option when there is no waves in the other spots of the area, but it also can get very good and clean when the other spots get stormy.
+
Very cool, there's a rock there that you can see. When it's big it makes triangular waves.

A Great Second Option - If you found very crowd Arpoador, Diabo is a great second option for who wanna get into good barrels. Is the beach on the other side of Arpodor's rock. But be careful!!!Diabo is divided in two parts: The smaller beach and the bigger. The last one is Army's property and nobody is allowed to walk in the sand. But surfing that is no problem!Good waves...
