this brown envelope system is everywhere, its very sad. nobody wants to think of the consequences of their actions on natural enviroments like this. got to keep on pushing these people to learn to respect the enviroment, and to keep these amazing beaches and waves!!!!!

But as we all know money rules and everything else is secondary.. if the local "Alcalde" has to choose between preserving the rural landscape and a brown envelope filled with crispy 500 euro notes.. we are well and truly fuke"$. thanks to SALVAR EL PALMAR which is helping and trying hard to stop the destruction.

Be warned, this place is not for beginners, I have surfed here for the past 15 years and would say that it is one of the most dangerous places to surf in Spain. The wave breaks closer to the shore than the Graviere in France. Even bodyboarders struggle to make the drop. Most of the time with very dangerous side shore rips (4 knot currents) that even the most capable swimmers will struggle in. It aint all doom and gloom but this place must be respected. Please click on the link below to help us save el Palmar beach, the Ba$%·srds are trying to build a concrete Macro-hotel and destroy the natural beauty of the area.

spaz. they belly ride into spaz and call it a "maneuver". they spaz twice on a wave and you would think they just backfliped their tricycle or base jumped out of their baby carriage from all the chatter.
