Easy long and fast wave when conditions are there. If you are at the peak be careful with the closeouts, mistakes can be painful. broken boards is an issue specially by low tide. also popular with bodyboarders.
the wave can be as well very challenging as be an "easy" ride depending on tide, swell-size and direction. getting one wave will be your main concern since they are a lot of competitive locals -both surfers and bodyboarders- with very good surf-skills. stay friendly and keep the atmosphere peacefull ;-)
this spot IS localised, so give respect if you want to get some too, and want to get one of these challenging waves.

wrong name - this spot is known to the locals as Piscina and is can be awesome when its on but gets crowded. Spent 4 months this summer surfing around here.

- This is a super spot for Bodyboarding. At mid to low tide it is very hollow with some good tubes. It gets better when its 8ft+ with longer rides.
