 Additional Information

Highlight is the early break far out beside the usual beach break so that wave riding is possible up to close to the beach.
Flat water sections are to find close to the spot due to river mouth 5 km away.
Other Highlight is the ambience of great nature like long lonely beaches and huge sand dunes.
