Its next to the left of encuentro and its a dangerous wave if you dont know hoew to surf it cause its has shallow reef bottom and you can get really hurt. I ripped my baggys once there and im still sore. But it has the best shaped waves in the island and the barrels!!!!!

uhhm,. . . .Destroyer! - Hello my friends i'm Pio from Puerto Rico.I have been bodyboarding for almost 20 years and living in RD for more than two years. . .for sure this is one of the best tube riding waves i have ever got in my live!. . I remember the first time i got there with nobody just by myself and a few guys in Encuentro just looking like . . .this guy is crazy!?. . A solid 5 to 6 feet set came a took me inside! then i realized why this place was empty.The set move so fast and it can really hurt you.the reef is to dry.But anyway, there are more barrels than beat downs( if you are lucky!)and you can get lots of mini chopes styling waves!! Its so different when you see it from the shore. . .just get out and blow your mind!!

!!!! - This wave is better than the encuentro break it's got barrels and breaks on a sand bar so that when you beaf it it's not going to fuck you over(although the reef starts a little farther out and some times it breaks too far out and gets real shallow) Just don't go to far to the right(looking from the line up, left if you're looking from the beach) because thats where the reef starts. But yeah this waves so great for the goofy footers out there, I remember the first time I surfed it, I got barreled on EVERY wave I mean after surfing that spot barrels are no longer a "special" thing where when you catch one you're all stoked about it for a while. Just check it out and whatch out...specially at low-tide but then who's dumb enough to surf the destroyer at low tide any ways...
