hey guys, this is my home break, the feelin in the water is gud, but if its ur first time: be friendly talk to us, cus if u dont and u take our waves the feelin changes quickly. in winter we get VERY GUD easternly winds which brings 1.5-2m waves, the best place to surf in this case is on teh right of teh bay, this means onlt lefts ( teh lefts are steap`sets at the beggining but then flow smoother to become a beautiful long left.
in summer the mood is of annoyance, wiv teh amount of tourists and surfers in teh water, but in winter the mood is mainly COLD but if u surf these waves ur face does light up BELIEVE
this spot RULES in winter, but in summer theres to many tourists in the water, and to many surfers, if u cum in winter theres about a max of 10 surfers in the water, compared to like 50 in summe
