World-class lefthand rivermouth with freight-train walls and deep barrels. Best waves on first swells of the autumn when the bar has been building up all summer. Offshore on S or SW winds, stronger the better.
Always crowded. Moderately dangerous, depending on swell size, wind and crowd. Be careful of the rip. Fairly consistent although almost never works in summer and only works from low to about mid tide. The wave is next to the port and village of Mundaka, a delightful fishing village apparently unspoilt by its surfing fame. Good facilities in village and friendly local residents. Parking can be difficult when the wave is on. Camping and surfshop nearby. Some estuarine pollution.
