Long rights. Works at all tides and a lot of swell. Northwest is the best. start out on a reef, if you make the inside connection you surf the wave 300m to a nice sand beach and have a open bay channel paddle back outside. it's a fairly tight little bay, easily paddled across so you can take lefts in on the south reef if that's firing. It mays close-out if there are southern and northern swells.
Keep your eyes on the horizon, don't let the view keep you out of the water 'cause the waves are super-powerful and worth the effort. Stand-up tubes very possible...
Great potential and waves and size, gorgeous view from the water. When sets are less frequent, you can hear the Mariachi music drifting over the water from the restaurant on the point.

overrated - i dont see y there is the hype about this place, there are huge rocks in the line up, access is a bitch you have to paddle all the way from the bottom of the bay, that is if you can make it past the shore break on the inside. the gate guard at the hotel will not let you through even if you bribe him and even if he did there is no good spot to paddle out through the rocks that form the spot. the wave itself is at best sketchy with big boils and unmakeable sections at all tides and jagged lava rocks that stick up all over the place. this place is a joke. i wouldnt reccomend surfing this place unless u have either a death wish or have an indestructible board.

Ricky's Place - Calafia can be too wicked...but I like the reef just south of it. There's a tiny little cove with reef on both sides and sand in the middle. If you know Ricky's place (great Margaritas), I surf pretty much right below. A good S wraps nicely into the bay, but with less power than Calafia.

Pinto Cup- The Man, the Myth , the Legend! - Don't try to fool me Gringa! I know you are a stand up surfer! I know that you want to be mas macho like me and rip Calafia on a boog1e board. But I say again to you, go home El Gringa, with your homo surfboard! Ride a sponge like a real man. Everyone knows that I am the king of Calafia, for I am the legendary Pinto Cup from Rosarito Beach!
