 Access

Pretty easy access, be careful with the sharp, full of mussles (mejillones), rocks... Be careful as well how you get out... Watch the locals, and be careful because you may lose a fin or two...

Atmosphere

Great world class left wave, has a "pipelinesque" drop, sucks up on top of the rocks, good moment to barrel if you stay on the far left of the peak, could get to a very descent size 8-10 feet. Pretty long ride.
Dangerous, be careful not to hit the bottom, sharp mejillones with cut you open like a knife.
