Best tide movementRising and falling tides
when its small surf to the right with the locals. they don't like people surfing right in the corner there, but show a little respect, dont drop in and you wont hassled
when its big paddle out from the left hand corner in the shelter of the break water (begginers watch the rip here) and surf wherever.
at low tide there can be a classic left hander in 5ft+ of swell from the end of the break water rip right across the beach.
this can be a classic spot on its day, but crowds and shifting sand banks take a b it away from it. san seb is a great place though for partying, so if youre going that way be sure to check it out, and spend some time there. chances are if its not in summer you'll be rewarded with great waves
surf in the morning and you can get it almost to yourself. by 12 or 1 it can get packed

Attention beaucoup de vols sur la plage - Je suis allé surfer à Playa de Gros au mois de décembre par une belle journée ensoleillée des vagues de 1 à 1,20 m offshore 20 degrés à l extèrieur, bonne session, quand j'ai aperçu 2 personnes s échapant avec mes affaires sur le dos. Le temps que je sorte de l'eau, il était trop tard. Je suis rentré à bordeaux (plus de 200 Kms) en combinaison. Alors si vous allés surfer là-bas, changez vous à la voiture et gardez votre clef.
