LJ - I've been surfing this spot for 18 years and it is strange that they would waste their memory stick on those pictures. The place breaks so much better than that. Last I was there a few years back it had become packed and localized. Far cry from 89' 90' when I used to have to beg people to surf there. The place is not easy, so not for everybody at low tide or when big, you will loose skin don't really understand why it is listed for everone.

Early bird catches the worm - Surfed here every morning(Sunzal better in the evenings) for two weeks, be prepared for alot of waiting and late drops when the locals arrive, but at first light you might have it to yourself. This is the only valid left in the country, you understand why they want to keep it from becoming overcrowded. The right can get good and heavy too. Same as anywhere, show respect and thing's should be cool.

- Fun wave, just surfed it for a week straight.Low tide not high is best and it glasses off most evengings. Localised,was often only non Salvo in the surf and never felt welcome despite minding my manners as always.
