This is actually the small fisherman port of Ahtopol. The town is 20km away from border with Turkey. The spot starts working only after 2,3 days of good NE,E wind (min 5 beaufort). September and October are the best months. November is good as well, but pretty cold and the place gets looking dramatic.

For all goofy riders this is the best spot in Bulgaria. Please bear in mind that in the Black Sea we don't get as many waves as in the Ocean and sometimes we don't see waves for months.. but when they come they really come fast and powerful...at least at this spot..
The spot is amazing..best spot in the whole of Bulgaria. It needs good wind to start working but once there's a forecast..it is worth the trip. Around 70km from Burgas and 450km from Sofia. My man Tony Gogov discovered this spot and we all decided to name it after him. Respect to all those who ride in the Black Sea.
Really good spot to surf when there is persistent wind for about 3,4 days.The local town is very quiet in September and this is the best time to come. For the regular riders it is good fun too. Very shallow at some places..watch out for them rocks..
