My girlfriend was also with me.............you need somebody to guard the towel
She cant really swim anyway so doesnt go in the water so I was on my own really. I did wipeout at el cotillo and crack a brand new board with the back of my head, which was interesting, seeing stars for a bit afterwards.
Look at some of the pics on magicseaweed and youll see it could squash your head like a grape if theres a swell crashing into it
Rocky Point in corralejo an intermediate reef break if the conditions permit ie a big swell. At this time of year el cotillo will be your best bet as its on the right side of the island.
Almost all the breaks are lava reefs exept got flag/glass beach and el cotillo on the east.
Grab a copy of this....Ive got a few and cant fault them.http://www.amazon.co.uk/Stormrider-Guid ... 0953984044
Try heading out earlier as the wind seems to pick up later in the day I noticed.
Habour wall (el muelle) is a short walk to the top of the town.....that can get a bit bonkers.
I seen a good spot going off on the bus on the way home.......Down near glass beach out past the huge hotels out there......
Flag beach is within walking distance if you dont get a car but its more for kite surfers...worth a look though
