Prevailing winds
A northeast wind averages 19 - 25 knots in winter, increasing to 30 knots in the summer months of July and August.
Water conditions
Famed as one of the world's latest hotspots for surfing, there are good ground swells that hit this coast and wrap around the points. Perfect for a combo wave and strapless freestyle event with cross-onshore winds. The water temp sits around 19 – 24°C / 66 - 75°F all year.
Competition history
Keahi de Aboitiz was undefeated at this spot for four years, between 2013 and 2016 in all competitions, before being unseated by the maestro, Mitu Monteiro in 2017, who re-enacted his victory here in 2007, when he became Wave World Champion.
