general information

The jewel of DR surfing. A rocky reef provides a peaky take off with a fast, hollow left hander that gets gnarly with a bit a swell size. There is also a right hander that is more manageable than the left that breaks through to a sand bottom. All levels of surfer are catered for here with Inside sections over sandbars provide lesser ability surfers options as well. Popular with the local crew, no trip to DR is complete without a surf here.
