encanta la vida - Spent 2 weeks at encanta la vida just a short 6min walk from up the hill. Had overhead conditions for a few days and really notched up my skills, this wave lets you have your way with it. As the swell decreased my wife also had a blast at pan dulce bay on waist high surf with long rides. Great place for both when your skills are growing

Pleasently Suprised - This is a low tide break and if you get it on a 6+ foot swell in the morning your going to have a blast.

On the right day there is no better - This wave on the right tide, swell direction and size will match many warm water rights to be found. The take-off is over some boils. The take-off is mellow the wall builds and will throw just before the channel. The lava rocks to the East, jutting form the beach can goev some concern on a clean-up set of caught inside. Pan Dulce, further East is a fun long wave when Backwash gets MACK! Good place to stay...Bahia Esmeralda...good food, nice bungalows and quick walk to the surf.

Backwash - Very finicky break but when its on its on...long fun right....to get good requires a 5-8 foot Surfline forecast
