  • Rémy Lavie Descriptions:
    • The South run (Ed. - possibly El Medano - Las Galletas?), similar to the Kihei run on Maui Island: This is 11 KM of bliss on the Glide Avenue! Lined up with bumps, which are easy to read and to ride. This friendly swell and the nearby coastline makes it the ideal course for DW beginners and intermediates alike, that have a decent ability on the flat.
    • The North run ( videosame run?), resembling the Makapu’u run on Oahu Island : This is 15 KM of technical and challenging paddling and riding, in unpredictable and heavy waters. Reading the bumps is tricky, and you will be in open sea swell. A really great run for advanced paddlers.
