El Chanquete Surf Guide

El Chanquete in Andalucia is an exposed beach and reef break that has quite consistent surf, although summer tends to be mostly flat. Offshore winds blow from the north northeast. Windswells are much more typical than groudswells and the optimum wave angle is from the southeast. The beach break offers both left and right hand waves. Good surf at all stages of the tide. When the surf is up, it can get quite busy in the water. Submerged rocks are a hazard.
