Big, fast, heavy/thumpy barrels - Doesn't show it on the map but this spot is the beaches just south of Troncones point. I thought it was way more of a bodyboard wave than surfboard. The A-frame peaks look great and from the road, but they're actually a lot faster breaking and pound super hard on the sandbars. It's Pretty dangerous, especially if you're not used to this kind of speed and power...have you're paddle on before you get there. DO NOT eat the food in town...you will die for a couple of days.

Troncones - I just got back from Troncones. We scored good head high waves. The last 2 days we surfed out front of Mi Casa Su Cas. I posted some tube pictures. Thanks to Osman and the crew at Mi Casa Su Casa.
