 Additional Information

This is an easy wave to surf and has both a fun right and left. The wave is not powerful and is quite slow. However, if it gets above 5 feet or so, it turns into a totall rippable wave with good sections. Line up with the edges of the bay to surf the right or lefts. Don't get caught on the left side of the bay or you'll be into the rocks. Respect the locals and have fun. Surf in the late afternoons for best conditions (less wind).

Atmosphere

Atmosphere is cool. Localism is catching on but in a very relaxed way. The Aruban people are the friendliest people in the world and will welcome you to the break if you're not a dick to them.

General

It's where I learned to surf and it's a fun place to surf and hang with the locals. Make sure you say hi to Jeffrey, Xenon, Jeremy, and the other localz.

how to be a kook - step 1: find an awesome barreling wave that breaks from one end of the bay till the other
