Description

The “Mongol” is an excellent wave in Gijón, located to the left of the Rinconín beach.

This wave doesn’t form very often because the conditions have to be just right, but when it does, it’s a good size. Winter is the best season for this spot.

It’s a right-hander with a rocky seafloor that is more potent at high tide.

Take special care when getting in and out; the current is quite strong and you’ll be hindered by a wall and rocks.

It’s usually quite crowded, as it’s not far from the town center.

Always respect the locals!
