Kerrey McKerrey from Czech Republic
“Not a bad spot except that extremely crowded all the time. Especially with the surf schools around which normally bring groups of around 40 students and they all go to water at once, the atmosphere in the water is quite aggressive and it gets so crowded that surfers touch each others boards sitting on the line up.”
