- We surfed this spot last October and it was nice. We were there on a Sunday- it was head high, breaking clean, and it wasn't too crowded at all. The only thing that sucks is all the runoff from slash-and-burn farming nearby... there is some ash and debris close to shore.

- the wave is really fun, i went with some onshore winds and it was still barreling. watch out for the croc that lives in the river
