Was fun - Surfed here 5 times in a week when working from POG. Mostly small and punchy. One morning was about 4 feet (1.5 times overhead) and hollow as hell. There was a wave breaking in front of the sea wall which was spitting so hard. The peaks were shifting and yes I would say that anyone can surf this wave, but only really experienced surfers can get barelled as they are hard to make. Would definately go back again if given the chance as was empty every day. Got a sharky vibe there though....Happy surfin.

Cap Lopez, Gabon is NOT pipeline~like! - It's C.Lopez & it's too small for Island~style ratings. I should know since I'm G.Lopez, I've surfed pipe~line, & that's on Oahu, Hawaii!!

Gabon - POG - HI, je surfe à pog depuis 1année. La vague du Cap lopez est bonne, quand c'est gros il vaut mieu utilisé une board avec du volume car ça creuse. Pour les petits jours, un fish est mieu.
Un petit bonjour a tous les riders gabonais dotn Alec.
Peace & surf
