Fun wave to ride, can be nicely clean, when big, it's messy with some clean rides possible, BUT good practise ground, the current is very strong, you can not lay still and not paddle . Compared to this, hawaii is easy, coz you can just paddle out through the channel, sit and wait, take a wave and most of the time the wave even takes you...Moving around a lot is the key to good surfing here, because that way you a) stay warm, b) get waves from time to time
Localism used to be a problem, but nowadays it's not that hard.
On good days, offcourse there will be some localism, because of the kooks trying to get throught, and not being able.
It's more localism to protect the unexperienced.
Respect the locals, especially on good days. Stay clear of the breakwaters (GOLFBREKERS)
Park your car right in front. Cooooolddd even in summer, bring warm clothes!
