Stormrider Guide

Uneven reef in the bay at Quintero where a long left setup shunts and sometimes barrels over the shallower sections at lower tides. Will handle a good slice of swell and the channel is deep enough to not close out, but it doesn't like the SW wind. The wave wraps around to an inside reef almost behind the island shedding size and offering a friendly option for improvers and groms. Across the channel is a mutant bodyboard slab right.

Scores 7/10 for consistency and crowds and there can be some vibe in the line-up. Car crime is a problem round here.
