Ask the local Taxi in Mazatlan to drive you to the cabo fairy. Once you get there you will see a little shack that will take you on the quarter mile boat ride to stone island where there is this epic wave.

Take the fairy over then walk to the right side of the island.
This is a low key spot. Get it in the beginning of the summer on the first few souths before the jelly fish do. Best wave i've ever found.
Epic right that wraps around the island.

Stone Island Point - HA! to the comment posted by Tori. You fool, you were rising the beach break, which I would classify as even less than average! When looking at the ocean, the wave you want lies at the end of a stone jetty-thing that leads out to a small island that is connected to Stone Island. You need to walk out there, jump off the rocks with perfect timing, and sprint out before a set washes you back into the rocks. Real shallow and perfectly peeling right. This wave is the real deal. But hey, if you couldnt figure all that out for yourself, its probably better you rode the crappy beach break with all the other fatback tourists.

Stone island - First off, Stone Island is one best waves in all of Sinaloa. A fast barreling 200 yard perfect right which is offshore to NW winds. Whoever said it was a Beach break did not know the wave broke off the side of the island. And this wave is far from average.

average indeed - meh, for sure not world class, its pretty much just your average beach break, keep walking down the beach from the ferry, past all the shops and restaurants, maybe a couple miles down and the waves get larger as the sandbars become exposed to more swell. It can get hollow depending on the swell, but it mostly closes out. I'd say its more of a shortboard wave on decent swell than a longboard wave... but then again, I only surfed it on a shortboard.
