    Just wondering becuase I saw the footage of it with all the evacuations & one of the scenes they showed was on the beach & there was a guy sleeping next to a board bag & you couls see a lil whitewash but the cam didnt roll around to show the waters enough to see. Just wondering. Now that they are leaving I dont think there will be much siurfing there for a long time. Surf boards are expensive for people moving into an area thats gonna need rebuilding. theyre gonna demolish everything before they hand it over I guess, which I dont understand at all but yeah, could there be a surf break there?

  • Truly clear water. No crowds. (especially down south ;) )   Consistant and hollow. Even in summer. But rarley gets more than 3-4 on most breaks. Its a small, but extremly deversive coast line. Need to pick and choose localls. Wich isnt too hard if u have a car and gas money. (a litre is about a buck and change)  Lotsa good diving (superior infact) when its flat.  And its not pronounced "GAZA"......Its "AZA"   Carry a side arm.

    Great story. The hair on the back of my neck is still standing at attention.
    Trust in the board.
