Atmosphere

When it is working it gets pretty competitive - especially as it is a favourite haunt of body-boarders.

General

Explosivos produces short, fast rides often giving perfect barrels before 'exploding' onto the shore-break. Broken boards (not to mention bones) occur due to the shallowness of the water. When it is good - it is very good.

By the tubemonster , 26-03-2007

yeah whatever, you spongehumpers - looks pretty surfable to me...don't forget kneeboarding, a pretty good choice between shark biscuits and footboarding. KBers would kill this break
