Atmosphere

One year ago there was one surfer who owned property in the drake area. Only he and a couple others surf it regularly.It gets epic.Easily as good as anything else I surfed in costa. Thats comparing it to roca loca and 6-8 foot dominical point.Very good on the south swell and no ones around. Not many surfers stay in those camps!!!I was on a dolphin and whale expedtion for 4 days and got taken there.

cool spot - Got the chance to surf the spot about 10 years ago. Me and a buddy rode horses from his girlfriends house to the break. Just us and a boogie boarder who lived on the beach surfing everyday. Super fun left, just got to dodge a few rocks.

It will barrel - I've surfed this break when the tide was high but going out. The waves weren't barreling much when I surfed it but they push hard and fast and get pretty steep just the form of the wave doesn't barrel when this place is surfable. Ricardo will rent you a board or sell you some necklaces he's a nice guy last time I was there in early 07 he was still renting them for under $10 I think. You can get held down here pretty easy still and get pushed way left on to some rocks if you're not careful. Tough spot to surf but fun.

not so good - I have surfed this spot as well. It doesn't get good very often and there are several rocks sticking out of the water during medium and low tide exactly where the wave breaks. very dangerous. if you get hurt here, you need a helicopter to see a doctor
