A 15m deep, seagrass covered shoal 2.5km offshore creates an A-frame peak on the two or three largest swells of the winter for the European tow-in crew. A small team made history on November 22nd, 2002 before a second session on March 10th, 2003 when Sebastian St Jean towed into a wave estimated at 66ft (20m) winning the XXL contest final. Only breaks on low tide unless it is psycho huge.

Can be watched from the coast road cliffs between Socoa and Hendaye, because riding this place is definitely a spectator sport.
