Get the ferry from the harbour at Corralejo. It leaves at 10am and returns at 4pm. From the port on Lobos it is a long walk over to the point. Paddle out off the rocks.
Take loads of food and water and sun screen and booties.
The spot has several sections which link up easily.
There is an easy take followed by a nice open wall for 100m or more, then a long fast tube section. This part of the wave is the most dangerous as it is very shallow and close to the cliff. After the tube section is another open wall followed by another tube section which may close out. If you get this far it is about 500m.
The island of Los Lobos is unihabited and the wave breaks along the base of an old volcanoe. Because of the remoteness of the spot it is best left for experienced surfers. A bad wipeout could be nasty if you get dragged across the bottom and help is a long way away.
Awe. The length of the ride and paddle back filters the crowd a bit.
This wave is totally epic.

Had a blast - Just returned from a week in Corralejo, surfed Los Lobos 3 times, offshore, headhigh & perfect every time. Also surfed Rocky point, and Las Salinas which was well worth the trip.
