awesome spot - This place go's off. One off the best spots for guys who want to step it up. Super ez take off and a real nice set-up for getting tubed. If you surf any spot in Costa make sure you surf here.

Escon - I lived in Herradura for 8 years BEFORE they built that shity marina. I had my own panga I surfed Esondida alone for years. It's a shame it's over run by kooks like Pablo? If these gringos did not come down and show you the beauty of surfing you would still be riding on a burro idiota.
