Dangers

 Additional Information

We normally surf to the right of the village (where we park). There are man-made barrier cement blocks to protect the village from floods, and we usually surf to the east of these. Typically where the mouth of the (sometimes dry) river dumps to the ocean, either side works. This is usually an off-season surf spot (June-October) since during the main season (Nov-May) the surf gets too big and sloppy, making it too difficult to get past the breakers.

Atmosphere

Great spot with a small village and friendly locals. Main down-side is that it's a bit far from town, but pretty consistently able to catch waves with a long-board here even in off-season. Sand fleas can be a bit annoying, so best to keep in the water as much as possible. We use a mixture of a touch of Dettol in our sunscreen that seems to help keep the sand-fleas at bay.

A bit far from town, but still a nice spot with some fun waves.
