Edit Spot

World classic to Epic when it's on.

Atmoshpere is as usual very cool. Arubans are the friendliest people on earth. Do show respect for the locals.

Additional Info:
This spot is very fickle but when it's on, it is just like Padang Padang or Uluwatu. Not a drop of water out of place and the best waves you'll ever surf. It's not a very hollow wave but it is long and perfect. When it gets over 6 or 8 ft. it has a very long right. It's usually a left though. For it to break it either requires a hurricane in the gulf of mexico or a huge cold front near the lower half of the USA.

Park your car in front of the spot and talk to the locals. They will clue you in on where to paddle out and where to sit as this spot is a bit tricky. There is a long channel on the right of the reef and it is about a 10 - 15 minute paddle out. The wind is always offshore here but very hard blowing, that's why it needs size to break good. The best part is that it is a very long wave. When it's on, it gets really crowded. Good luck. I have lived on Aruba for 10 years and I've only caught it perfect 3 times or so. Other times it's still fun.


Very simple. Take the main island highway from the hotel area all the way towards the lighthouse look to your left at the end of the housing area.
