Nice, flat water with shallow areas. You ride from the lagoon to the ocean for nice waves, where the current is quiet strong. Be careful with the stones at the smallest part of the river mouth. In the river mouth waves can be very choppy, be careful. The lagoon gets shallow or partly dry. Good for beginners. When it has deep water only intermediate riders, since if somethings happens you have to walk a very long way if you drift far downwind.
