And just 2 miles downwind... - The new Pozo Izquierdo!!!! one wave.... 8 cutbacks!!!! El Bajo del Ingeniero rules above everything!!!watcha this link!!! http://media.putfile.com/mexico_winds

This is the Waimea Veracruzana - Aloha gueyes ! well this is a nice beach and if you are a noserider you are in the right spot for it, the waves are very good to do some bottom turns, spinning up the nose, hang tens, cut backs, headstands, and more. it's also a very good place for shortboard and bodyboard. rights and lefts make this place an awsome spot to have fun, even better after a good norte (north wind) or a good swell, and if you are lucky...maybe you'll get caught in a tube or two. do you wanna see more spots around here to have fun? ask to the local guys about: Marti, Garlics, El secret, Mocambo, Ica or Camaronera banzai. See ya in the water and good waves.
