Barra - Sorry everyone- I got this place 1 year before the ripcurl pro or whoever it was exposed it. Me and two mates stayed for 2 weeks. Surfed everyday, as long as Kirra, as perfect as the best spots in indo. Most times just the three of us- max 10 guys out. Not a brag- just saying it pays to get out and go places before the world tour picks em up. Peace

waste of time - just back from mexico...
this wave is the best wave in oaxaca.
but its so pack that you can wait for one wave like 20-30 minutes.
do the consideration if its worth it, i dont think so....

this wave rocks - this place rules dont believe what you read, nexpa is a muddy mush burger and ticla is over run by canadians and guadalajara wannabes. this is the best wave in mexico hands down. a must for the traveler who want to catch sick waves. early not crowded at all
