If you see white water breaking out there is because the surf is happening if you go by your self means you are fit and ready to stay up to 3 hours swimming and paddling with no place to rest or water to drink and if any thing hapens out there you are by your self . If i do surf alone there is usualy on a long board.
Be aware of small to medium size sharks its not a nice encounter if this happen try what i did..
I was on my way back to the beach with a short board and there was flat water all around me,so i could see in a distance a nice shark fin i started paddling very strong and also yelded to my friend that i saw a shark .I think he notice my moovement and came very fast on my direction all i could do was stop paddling raise my feet and arms from the water and stay still because he was very close now and i had to stop otherwise he would bite me...by keeping still and ready to defend my self i think he got suspicius about me and my high adrenalin and gave up the fight and just swam a way ..what a relief ..I paddle fast to the beach and he was gone very fast.
Be calm on this kind of situation because theres a lot of food out there for them but they can come for breakfast right there where the waves are .
This spot is a mellow fun wave that allow you to practice on your bord standing and plennty cutbacks at least 4 cut backs in one wave.
The beauty and perfection of the wave is another factor that makes you pleased to be out there especialy when you are with your friends.
For stand up paddle surf is just a paradise .
