The spot has lots and lots of potential , the waves that pass the jetty get transformed from deep-water waves to long powerful walls partially sheltered from the wind ! Bad thing is that it only works on big days , but on the biggest of days you could ride for maybe 300-400 meters , but the wave gets pretty dangerous ! In general it's an epic wave for Black Sea ! Also there's a fun aspect of the spot : in big days depending on your positioning you can ride a wave into Tzarevo or Vasilico ( old Tzarevo ) which are a good 15 minutes away by walking , but only seconds away by surfing ... time warp ... ! LOL
The spot is in the very heart of the town into the harbor bay. The harbor jetty and the northern bluff partially shelter the waves from the winds which can mess up conditions at other spots. The wave itself is long , fast and powerful (on big days), but is not slabby or ripping so hitting the bottom is not really possible. There is a dose of healthy fear when surfing the spot as you can easily get closed out and be washed into the rock wall , with a broken board being the least of your problems , so it is best to sit deeper anyways! Being in the town the spot isn't really wild and beautiful with stunning backgrounds or such , but there is a old church right on top of the point , and there is a special feeling , one of old fishermen villages battered by the wind and waves from ages... Otherwise it's gloomy and raw !
The spot can be potentially dangerous in the right section of the wave, as you have to kick out the back before it closes out into the wide coastal-defense rocks ! The best way to surf the spot is to take off as deep as possible , race in front of the sections and kick out the back. Or you can go left , safer but not the real deal !
There are generally 3 points of access : paddle in from the Vasiliko ( old Tzarevo ) side of the wave where the close-out section is less intense , beware of the submerged rock although the rip and waves make it visible ! You can also enter the wave from behind from the harbor , very easy , but takes a 10 minute paddle ,so watch your breath ! And lastly the straight forward approach through the white water , not recommended in bigger days , if you wish to preserve your energy , and make sure your leash is reliable!
