Atmosphere

Easy to get to as far as Baja is concerned. One of Baja's best and most overlooked point breaks, though also one of her rarest.

Blah - I was there this last weekend from Friday to Sunday. One of my best friends has a house down there a few spots from Rick. I've been there several times and haven't experienced anyone sketch, though there's a dude with a gun that protects the grounds. Im sure that has to do with it. Anyway, rode some quads down to the hotel, where my friend broke down at about 10pm. We could hear bandidos out there in the middle of nowhere! But they never came through. We were waiting. I've seen the cove at the hotel breaking 6-8 when the ship was at barely 3. Actually if you drive down just past the second small river outlet south of the ship, it's almost always a few feet higher and pretty clean. Also the outer reefs break sick once in a blue moon, but you need to have one of the fishermen take you out. All in all rad area because its a pirate town and you can imagine the great things you can find in a pirate town. Surf sucks 99 percent of the time. Head north for a bit up to the next point and its almost always better. But ships is mostly a kook spot or for old longboarders.

Inside Scoop - Yes, the first time I surfed there was in 1977. Hmmmm? Now that's 30 years. I stand by my statements. Maybe I AM trying to bad mouth the area so I'll have it all to myself. But I don't think so. Really, I'm just warning people so they don't waste their gas looking for waves that may look good on a map, but are actually total crap in person.

What the heck is El Gringo talking about? - What you trying to keep everyone away so you can have all the waves to yourself. Shallow shoals? Meth Heads. Camalu is fun and pretty darn consistant. I always find something. But I check the radar before I head down. You sound knowledgable but also sketchy and derogatory. Ive had friends surf this neck of the woods for 30 years. Can you match that? Sure, watch out for banditos and drug addicts, but dude on any swell this area is pretty fun. Go back to Gardena.
