Dangers

- Rocks
- Pollution

 Additional Information

ocks are only a hazard if you take off too deep off the point... take off just a little bit right of the boil (the local kids sit really close to the boil and usually snag the best waves - but i have seen even the better locals and guides take stitches due to the rocks...).

on the bigger sets, there's a peak a bit right off the main peak... you will almost always get your share if you sit on this peak.

Atmosphere

this is a way fun spot and will barrell on most waves... very easy to set up... just drop and wait till you see it wall up and ready to throw...i got barrelled three times on one wave... way rippable too.. the only time it gets crowded is when the surf tours are there and they have more than the usual 3 guys... but most of the time, everyone is really friendly... can get polluted after a hard rain...

Wave pig guide no wey...... - No,no lo que nesecitas es tener epiritu de aventura y que te guste estar en "The Search" .Este Seand Point es muy divertido y si tu estas manejando a centro america, tienes que buscarlo y veras que no es en vano el esfuerzo... El Wild West de el salvador no es como lo pintan, la gente y los pescadore son amigables y hay muy buenos camarones....saludos a Luis,Neftali,Omar,Don Rafa,Misael...
