PASCO'S WAS THE SH**!! - Just got back from mainland. It was definately firing. I'm sure this place macks in the summer, but the winter kills it. Couple of feet overhead and clean off shores until near noon. Has power, but I never felt like I was in danger. Know your limits and enjoy this place!
National surf tournament - There will be a national surf tournament in Pascuales from 13 to 14th November. If you have "huevos", just join!

No Joke - The below story is no joke.I visited and stayed at the same palapa as the venezuelan bodyboarder in Sept. 03.Upon getting off the bus,I look over and this guy is standing next to a washing machine in the dirt yard.With no lid,foam is shooting in the air everywhere.He smiles and welcomes me.I enjoy being taken into the local vibe.Try it sometime,the people you meet is what it's all about out of the water.Not wanting to stay bunched up with the tourists,I end up sleeping outside in a hammock at Elizabeth's palapa.She loved this madman.He had already been living for 8 months or so.This guy was a fuckin charger(Bigger nuts than Chad Barba in Puerto-with all due ra-spect to Chad).One of only a couple guys here who could even get out to the take-off spot on huge days.He was living on a shoe string-working for Elizabeth doing anything for food/shelter and to surf this hellish wave.One day I worked with him to build a roof for her.Long hard day,but her cooking is priceless.I have ridden lots of epic shit world-wide and won't forget my wipe-out here.Pulled into what looked like a clean makeable 8ft cylinder,as finished my bottom turn and pulled up into it,the whole bottom sucked dry and I bounced face-first into this super sand bar.Just an ordinary wave or it seemed.This place is very moody-a mixed bag.Reading what happened gives me chills.Story sounds the same except his wave was probably way bigger and obviously he didn't complete his session.Maximum respect to this Venezuelan charger.Every morning I could see it in this guys eyes and could see him getting pumped up to ride crazy-big-shit.He loved bodyboarding and could care less about what he rode or surf-fashion bullshit.Those are the same people who will not enjoy this place.He is a inspiration to me to keep riding bigger and bigger waves.Rest in peace mi amigo, If only I will be so lucky to die pushing the limits as far as you.
Venezuelan Lid Drowns - To all of you thinking of coming to Pacuales for a leisurely surf, make sure you know what you're doing. If you drag your knee getting to your feet, don't surf here. You will die. A Venezuelan bodyboarder drowned here a few weeks ago. He pulled into a barrel and never came out. He was found two days later by some crew with a jetski, his neck broken and tweaked to the side. The lip is thick and it falls with bone-breaking force, or at least enough to drill you into the sandbar. In my 20 years of surfing, this is the one place that nearly took my life. 14 years ago paddling back out after getting spat out of a big ol' barrel, I was faced with a 20 foot bomb that just detonated in front of me. It was like being hit by a mack truck and it took me what seemed to be an eternity to get back to the surface, only to be hit by the wave behind it. Board was gone, snapped leash. Long swim to shore. Bottom line: Do NOT underestimate this place; if you do, will die, or best case scenario, board the plane in a wheelchair. Love, Memo P.S. this is not a post just to scare people; if you've been here, you know.
very few hotels - The beach is great, but there are few choices of hotels... Great place to camp, though.

gringo local wannabees fat old trannies - i saw the worst expression of the american people by seeing old americans trying to humiliate and difamate poor mexican people. those white tranny guys think they are locals, there are better ways of keeping the crowd down than being ridiculous, grow up. Viva Mexico and their people, and repel the american invasion, this is your beach
good surf. some warnings. - just came back from ¨pasqwalis¨. the locals are really cool people. especially the dude with the surf shop. the surf is definitely not for the unexperienced. ... or rather, have little experience. waves will break you (and your boards). the surf show had about 5 broken boards apparenly from this week alone.my family in mexico tells me that many have drowned in this spot. none which i could verify are surfers. just beware of the strong currents.one more note. the oceanline has definitely come closer to shore in years past. i would say at least 50 meters since the last time i came four years ago. lots of concrete and debris where the old structures used to be. just ask the dudes in the surf shop for more info. ...far far away from huntington beach. i also have the shits.
Puerto escondido's unknown cousin - Massive thick tubes, consistent year round, can get epic very frequently, watch out for the concrete debris bottom.When its going off definetely an experts only point.If you need any information about it write me.
question? - how big does pascuales get and is there localism at tyhis spot?
