    yes, the problem is that we had very high/low tide while I was there, so in some cases it was very complicated going out early

    Well I was not 100% confident; only the locals were out, waves seemed much more closer to the rocks

    Yes, I've been to the other reef once (Bruno suggested it; it was very low tide, and the wind was supposed to pick up in the afternoon so I went there). It's a very good wave, with lots of flat water in between, the problem is that is choppier than the "regular" reef. It was very good though, not many people and long and "easy" waves.

    Yes, renting at Bruno's the evening were a little complicated (had to be out for 7-7.30 PM). This was expected; someone (maybe you) already told me that it would have been one of the rental problems

    Well my concern was people jumping on the "shorebreak", or say in the first waves they were on. I think at least you should wait to be on the outside... but it was my first outing in such big waves, so maybe everyone does like that? I don't know...
