This Wave is a shore break. If the swell is big, this wave becomes dangerous.
Be careful here, locals around this spots can be aggressive. Take a low profile.

- I confirm very powerful. The section brakes very quickly so it is very short runs. Wave is heavy and powerful when big. Becareful to rocks underneath and garbage from the river. It is not very clean and nothing to do with the tahitian wave. Great fun!
