Good spot - Good to see a place still exists where the locals havent been tainted by tourists. They were really respectful of everyone in the lineup, tourists and fellow surfers alike and had no attitude at all. They just surf because it is fun to go catch some waves with friends Simple as that
Hopefully it remains that way as id love to go back
