In contrast to other beaches, there are no dangerous cliffs or stones in the water at the beach section of "El Pozo" in Jandia, just like at "Cruz Roja". The current here is also relatively low and therefore rather harmless.
This slight current permanently pulls surfers parallel to the coast from north to south, which means down towards Morro Jable. It is caused by the wind waves that hit the beach at a lateral angle. Since the current runs parallel to the beach and does not go out to sea, it is not really dangerous. However, it can happen that the current pulls you into the steeper part of the wave, which may not yet suit your surfing ability. The current is strongest in shallow to waist deep water, close to the beach.
The steepest and also most powerful part of the wave breaks directly in front of the lighthouse. This is probably the only factor that inexperienced surfers should pay attention to on this surf spot.
While experienced surfers love this section of the wave, beginner surfers can be thrown quite violently and hard onto the flat sandbank or directly onto the beach.
Especially in summer, these high and steep waves, which are especially popular with the locals, do not break in many places. Therefore, on some days, the last wave section of "El Pozo" can get crowded.
If you are not looking for small tubes and vertical turns with your shortboard, you can safely avoid this wave section. In that case, you're better off surfing the gentler waves that run only a few metres to the left on the beach.
