Description:

After starting out on Makaha it was much easier for me to catch waves here at La Pampilla.  They were a bit bigger and there were more of them.  It's less crowded too.  But still plenty of people out in the waves.

The rocks here are much smaller (but still rounded) than Makaha.  So I had some problems with them getting into my fins and causing some nasty bruises on the bottoms of my feet.   It's also a decent swim out to the waves (for a beginner/intermediate), but nothing too tough.  You can swim out in the middle where the water heads back out to the sea.  Then the waves are on the sides near the rocky points.

I had a blast here and didn't want to stop.  My fins were rubbing me a bit though.  When I finally did stop and get out of the water I found that my fins had rubbed all the skin off of my inner ankles (size of a nuevo sol).  I bought some fin socks after that adventure ;)
