catch the rebound off the breakwall when it doubles up with the next wave. when it's on - it pitches and barrels off to the sand. Very inconsistant - works only 20 times a year.
Watch out for pollution, infection, floating bodies, rip-offs, muggings, sunburn. The few local surfers on the week-end are cool. The rest of the beach scene is outragous as only nigerians and crazy expats can provide. Everything for sale by endless parade of traders - swords, fake rolex, food, beer, beads, blow jobs, etc, etc.
don't go for a holiday - it is not worth the hassles but if you're working in Nigeria, it's a blessing!

Brown Trout Capital of The World - That's a sweet-looking wedge, but Christ that water is putrid looking.
I've surfed Imperial Beach after some big rainstorms, when the water looks like all of Mexico took one big simultaneous power-dump and flushed all at the same time. Tarqua makes IB look like Fiji.
Nigerian poo must be ultra-toxic
