Atmosphere

We went out and no-one else was out. It's a typical reef break and I cut up my back real good after getting caught inside. Rick Kane style.
Sewage dumps make for infectious bacteria sickness.

La-Isla - I surfed la-Isla in June of 2006 and it was great about 2 foot over-head on the-sets and very long walls really fun surf. The water was clean and the boat-ride was cheap, but the crowd went from one person to twenty five in twenty minutes.Over all a very fun wave.
