 Access

From the toll road going south (e.g. from Rosarito to Ensenada), look for the sign that reads, "Marina Las Salinas." Look for the kilometer (kilometro) markers along the way, and Las Salinas is approximately 73 km's. The spot is also denoted by the infamous little bar, "Angel's Camp," as that was the original name of the spot before the psuedo-marina was dredged.

 Additional Information

The wave is very fast and hollow. A few locals there, but they are very cool as long as you give them their props.
Park your car next to the cantina (Angle's Cantina), that way you can grab a cerveza at the end of your session. You'll have to walk a little bit, but it's worth it. **Look between the two jettys that extend out from the marina** That's your best bet..

Atmosphere

The Gringo and Mexicano locals at this spot are very cool, as long as you show respect (duh, the same as just about anywhere). Surf aggressively, but be mellow! Watch out for the rip current, as it has taken a few unsuspecting swimmers out to sea only to be rescued by fellow surfers.

General

This spot can be very challenging! Be on top of your game, and bring a friend and a strong leash. Especially strong on a NW swell, and even catches the S summer swells. Not to good for a longboard...

Bet Ya Didn't Know. - This is where Bradly Nowell and other members of Sublime owned trailers and surfed here in the 1980's. Big Don, Hippie Joe, Mike W and Scooter J were all there to witness a very magical period.

I guess "the good ole days" - I started surfing La Salina in 1983. We camped here every year until 1997. That's when our annual trips down south stopped. I guess we were really lucky because we "always" scored. It's open to all swells and really loves the combo. Sure it can get windy, but even windy it was pretty fun. Especially on a glasses off in the late afternoon. One of the best rides of my life (including my time on Oahu, Guam, Phillipines, Cal, was at the south end of the beach, prior the harbor. It was a massive day combo South and NW wind Swell. It was early afternoon, sunny, hot and glassey. The swell was hitting at 5-8 foot with larger sets. There was no one out at the south end. I paddeled out, extremely far this day. I was almost all the way out and a freak set hit. I was on vacation from Hawaii being stationed there for three years in the Coast Guard. I thought I was gonna make it and the hugh wall about a 18 foot face or bigger broke right in front of me. I bounced me so fucking hard I lost all my breath and came up gagging, only to find more walls a commin. To make a long story short, I washed up on the shore puking salt water as my friends made their way down the beach in my bros truck. They saw me laying on the shore hanging on my board and asked "are you coming in? It looks perfect". Well I got my breath and paddled back out and caught what whould be a perfect solid 8 foot back, super fast, lime green monster, that bowled all the way. I will never forget that session.

- I surfed this spot in December of 05 with a few buddies and it was during one of the strong NW swells that came through right before Christmas. It was around 4-6 feet. The tide was low going to mid with a strong rip on the inside which helped create some fast bowling rights. Overall, we got lucky cause we always check this spot on our way down south . If you do want to surf here make sure you make friends with some local residents and they might possibly let you park by their trailer. Most residents are weekend warriors from Southern California and they flock to Angels Camp on the weekends to relax. Please understand that you must respect the residents as this is a private community which is mostly unregulated. Other than that I spoke too much so good luck on your travels!
