 Additional Information

As you drive up to La Saladita there are numerous places to park your car near the restaurants. Getting out - it's a long paddle, but worth every stroke. Best place to enter the water is just south of the restaurants where the bottom is still sandy and you can avoid the breaking waves. There are 3 good breaks on a SW swell day in summer. Good for all experience levels. Wave speed tends to be slow on smaller surf days, very user friendly and better on a longboard than a shortboard, but can be great on a shortboard with big surf conditions.

Atmosphere

Mellow spot, but sometimes the locals can be a bit protective of their territory, as goes for anywhere when the place has been discovered. Overall, a great place for all skill levels.

General

Malibu's reverse wave! longboarders wave, really fun. A great place to get ripped off. And the vibe is "going south"... alas it had to happen sooner or later.

shortboard rentals - Anyone know about the shortboard surfboard rental situation in La Saladita? I would rather not bring a board, but it is always risky without some local knowledge. Are there decent boards there? or just beaters? do they get sold out for the day?

SOTELOS PLACE - The Sotelos is a nice affordable way to go if your staying in La Saladita. They are very nice people. Sotelos offer camping, bungalows, parking, and very good food!

best place to stay - There are many good villas or hotels to stay in at sladitas. Be sure Wherever you decide to stay you have a/c! La chuparosa, Jaquelines are just a few. But don't expect any money to be contributed to the needy!
