The Bunker

Our coast is blessed with a wide variety of wave types to all kinds of preferences, including giant waves. Unlike most of the breaks around here, “The Bunker” as it is locally known, its a peak that breaks far outside where the use of jet skis is necessary to pull the surfer in. It’s a practice known as tow-in. Normally, this wave only works after big storms occur at the ocean. Several factors like wind and swell direction need to line up together to make this monster wave to break. It can reach up to 7 – 8 meters high with shallow tubular sections.
