Skim Spot Characteristics

This beach, the widest in Europe, can produce a pounding shore break and easily holds skimable waves over head high in big swells at high tide.

On smaller swells there's a good skim wave at mid to low tide... Basically in a big swell, 10ft plus you want a high tide, less swell lowertide.

Apparently there's also a liner on the North beach Buacos although I'm yet to ride it.

This town has some serious buzzing night life!!!

If you're looking for a place to stay check out this Surf House - One of the Owners ME (JaX) will always be up for a Skim too and got boards to rent!


Easy access from the beach to the main break. The town has very good transport links, to get the most out of it get a car and explore around the surrounding area.
