 Additional Information

has been some time since i was there, couple of years ago, not too many surfers, many windsurfers though with the right wind. in the winter months it is working nice though.
i used to park my van next to a white wall with view of the spot and stay for weeks.
when El Palmar is getting a good size, then Canos will work. When Canos will get good size, Barbate will work fine.

Atmosphere

With the good wind, some Moroccans will come in their little boats from the other side, and when you are lucky they have some prsents for you!
Sitting in your car, raining, drink some Cafe Late, eat some tapa's and wait for some waves. For the rest not so much to do. Some interesting old towns.
But the people make it, and they are very nice

water temp: - I was there end of December. The Water Temp was like 15 - 16 Degree. Minimum a long 3mm/2mm Wetsuit. Or Better a 4mm/3mm.

so much people... - Its a good left with tubular secsions. But actually there is a lot of people in the reefbreak. You must go to the Palmar or to another wave because the locals can be very agressive.
