Between Santa Cruz and El Medano you will find an alternative spot to the El Medano region if the wind is too northern. El Medano is famous for being quite consistent and offering you to sail many days per month without even leaving the village. But the north and NNE wind sometimes doesnt enter at El Medano with its full power. Then its time for the wave cracks to drive 20 min on the highway till Guimar… You will find a spot very similar to Pozo Izquierdo. Big round rocks at the shore, sideonshore sometimes, but as well some days nearly total onshore wind and on good days up to masthigh waves. It can be very gusty, so dont be surprised that sometimes your 4,2 is too big and some minutes afterwards you feel nearly underpowered. Good for jumping, like Pozo. For surfing its not a spot you need to have seen, but still offers you some fun waves IF theres wind, but not really clean waves. You can see from El Medano if theres wind! Look out at the ocean, if you see more wind outside the Medano bay, it will work for sure.
