jah handers - we got tired of the morning crowd at salsa last week and ventured south toward Manzanillo in search of less crowded waves for a change when I stumbled across this place... good waves, saw a shark. very shallow!!

Handers 10 - Yea, it was end of April and there was a 5 ft swell at 14 seconds (or somewhere in that range). The faces were like i said about 10 foot and it was sweet having the takeoff with myself and my bros all alone for a nice session.

hans and panama - did you surf it recently at 10ft faces? hans is a local sign painter, but had talked about moving to bocos where sign painting pays a bit more. did you stay at that blue hotel down the way of jah's? take it easy
