General

Really nice people, good vibes, amazing surf, a lot of fun.

I always say : This is the best spot of the world !!!! Of course it's not !! But I grew up surfing this point In 23 years of surfing, for sure i had some fun !!!

The surf is great and the view of the moutain and the lagoon behind the beach makes it a wonderful wallpaper.
