Surfed it in June - We had mixed new SW swell / old SW swell while in town. Tule was junky (bad cross-shore winds), not very lined up and it was 1/3 the size of Costa Azul breaks. Even on our last day, which was solid, fresh SW head-high++ swell at Zippers, the Rock and Old Man's, it was only 2' here. BTW - I'm the guy who scored it really, really good in 2001 (post below). Since then I've been back every year (twice in '03) and it has been an unremarkable wave. Every time though I run into one or two people living down there who tell me it still turns on and gets really good a few times a year w/ a strong SE and good offshores.Shipwrecks sucked (size but no direction - not surprised as I get that place sooo rarely) and further out the cape it was marginally better. Very glad I brought the longboard. Ha - I say that after every Cabo trip, because even if you score3 good solid surf there are so many breaks that IMO are simply better ridden on something that can plane...

Has it got it's shape back? - Headed down end of July. Want to know if the reef has sorted itself out yet after 2003 hurricane. Anyone?
