It's the best wave of Asturias. The tube is easier than at Mundaka. Doesn't hold more than 2,5 m or 3m.
The take off zone is small so smile to the locals and pray ! Check the others peaks on the right side of the bay; they are also pretty good.
OK, you won't be alone here but it is worth a visit !
It's perfect for a trip with friends or your family. The atmosphere is terrific very early in the morning.

- I was chased out of the water by screaming, ultra-threatening "locals" before even catching a wave and even though I made a point of keeping a big distance from "the pack" (only 7 or 8 guys). It was the most violent, unpleasant experience of my 50 years of surfing. I was bodysurfing (pretty unthreatning) with a helmet on (obviously a bit freaky for them). Apart from being threatened with raised fists and sharp board charges, they shouted "get the fuck out of here, fuck off back to your country (NZ) you stupid clown" etc etc. Behaviour like that on dry land could get you in jail, but in the water these guys feel safe. Somebody should teach these guys a lesson.

- I surfed the place for a week with 2 others in October 1986. The swell peaked at a solid 12', with a super easy paddle out via the river mouth. Definitely high quality sand spitting barrels, unless something has changed.

- How do you usually paddle into the peak? From the right or from the left side of the river? Thx!
