The first time a group of surfers set sight on this wave (December 2009) a spectacular rainbow graced the bay of AinBarbar. A local legend relates rainbows to a Wolf's wedding, hence the name given to the spot. The expedition, led by photographers John S Callahan and Emiliano Mazzoni, consisted of a cast of international surfers including Sam Bleakley (UK), Emiliano Cataldi (ITA), Erwan Simon (FRA) and Tristan Jenkin (UK).
Without a doubt one of the Mediterranean's finest pointbreaks.
