The wave has 2 sections, you have to pass 2 sandbars. With low tide the wave became hollow and fast, with off shore wind tubes. With high tide the wave is less powerful. The best tide is high getting low.
The spot has lots of picks. You can find locals in the water and they are peaceful. In the "cabane Ndiare Surf" you can find local life guards: they know everything about currents and dangers, they are kind persons, so ask them if you need more info. You can find fish and rice, handburger, water and coke on the beach.
You always can have waves, sometimes it's windy and sometimes it's glassy, but you can have fun any surf level you have.
