Choppy water good for freestyle, free wave conditions apart from the thermal wind, from July to September u also get days when u have a bourini, thats how the locals call the strong northwest wind...its then when the water transforms! from the usual choppy conditions u get big waves ideal for wave style windsurfing and kite surfing.
