You can paddle until the line up. The best time to surf is with middle tide. The drop is vertical and than the wave opens, long and fast. There is a lot of water so it's really hard to touch the rocks when you fall.

Atmosphere

There are only local surfers, just 2 or 3 nice guys, they are fishermen also and they will ask you to stay for dinner. The landscape is amaizing: the island is totally green and a lot of fishing boat all around.
