“Please don't comment anything about our waves....
Go to some other place and comment what you want, but not
here in Cadiz.
Because of people and not surfers like you, our waves are being f**ked up by so called surfers, these outsiders just throw shit on our beaches and don't have any manners.
Thank you.
