From San Juan get on route 2 and head towards rincon. Before rincon is an area called aquada. There is a lookout spot on route 2 that is up fairly high and overlooks the ocean. Down below and just to the right is Bridges. You will see a point sticking out and rights peeling off the point. Although this area looks like the surf spot most surfers sit inside the point somewhat as I believe it is too shallow to surf out off the point. Nice beautiful peeling wave. Keep heading down route 2 a little ways and find your way down to Bridges. I don't know the road but it is easy to find once you see the lookout spot.

We parked are car right in front of Bridges, there is a road that runs right in front of it. This is a beautiful peeling right that is not as hard breaking like Maria's. Maria's in the rincon area was a few feet over head and thumping, went to Bridges and it was peeling waist to chest high and perfect. There were 6 locals out, surfers and boogie boarders and I was the only American out although I had a few friends on the beach. Looks like it might have a local vibe as I got a few dirty looks but that was it. The swell needs to be pretty big as this wave is in a more protected bay area. Good spot when everywhere else gets big.
Of all the spots I saw in PR, this spot peeled the best. Other surf spots were more sectiony whereas this wave peeled in the same spot almost every time.

Puerto Rico Surf - Aguadilla - What was supposed to be a small, still-water harbor behind the jetty, filled in with sand in no time, and to our delight a gut-wrenching wave formed over the sandbar out front.

- Not a beginner's break by any stretch. Had to bail our a 15yo caught on the inside this past winter and his dad nearly impaled me on a shoulder drop as I was coming out of a 3 sec tube. The bottom is full of all sorts of crap so people come out hurt that are used to riding sand bar breaks.

unreal waves dirty wave real urban feel to it - the lineup is marked by floating tires and the water quality is ass but man the waves are so gooooooooooood. one local kid was ripping and the rest were aggro body boarders. down the beach to the south is another unreal right called schoolyards, which is, you guessed it, right in front of a little school. no one out and PERFECT. go there cuz no one else does and it is such a great wave.
