    The picture/video is of Popoyo's Outer Reef. The wave breaks over a shallow rock slab. So shallow that most only surf it during high tide. Definitely a heavy wave for experienced folks only.

    The only thing I see wrong is being anywhere near a jetty, pier, or other obstacle that a beginner would find hard to negotiate. Better to find a wide-open beach area for surf lessons. A lot of...
