Atmosphere

This spot is incredible, it's one of my favorite spots on the island. I've been able to pull some of the rarest moves on the waves here. The backsides are awesome. Sometimes you get waves that take you all the way to Andicuri. The waves vary in size and it depends on the season.

General

Really good spot, though I've seen some sharks only twice in my life at this spot so there is no need to fear the name of the place.
