Surf's up! This entire shopping center is completely devoted to fashions, surfboards and anything else related to the sport, and also houses a surfing museum.

This must be heaven if you are in your 20's and surf daily. But I'm 70, haven't surfed for 30 years, and don't need to buy for my grandkids. There is absolutely NOTHING else here except a cafe

Half cleaned, carpet had certainly seen better days and had probably never been cleaned. Fresh bedding but most surfaces didn't appear to have been touched. In the evening the room was freezing cold, actually colder than outside! Must have been due to lack of insulation...More

I found nothing there. Not many shops were opened when we were there, probably due to the fact that it was an afternoon in winter. There is no point to go there.
