Atmosphere

Kind of shifty, somewhat hard to read, but you can get big long waves that peel and reform. When its blown out in the afternoon it can be big but not as powerful. Just be careful on the low tides of the sharp bottom.

General

Fun afternoon spot. Uncrowded, long, and usually big. This place is also good whenever its glassy, but i usually surfed it when it was kinda onshore.

Best sand bars - Esterillos este definatley breaks biggest of all three Esterillos. It is the emptiest beach i have ever seen , saw one surfer there a guy named phil , who was out in surf that was gigantic , so big i didn't see him for an hour....

the spot is sweet - I had a blast at this spot. Just me and a friend, no one else out. When it gets bigger it's kind of creepy, hard to read. I often got the feeling we weren't alone, I think the man in the grey suit may have been lurking because of all the fishing activity.It is deffinately worth surfing though,it can really crank at times. If you don't like crowds check this spot out before its too late. Matapalo is a good spot too, It's just a beach break off the beaten path full of german enviro tourists and dikes, no surfers, the waves are all yours.
