 Additional Information

they are two beaches with fat waves of easy access that break between 3 to 6 feet.ONLY BREAKS WHEN IS HURACAN SEASON.

Es un spot bueno. Es cerca para los surfistas de Toa Alta,Dorado,Cataño y porsupuesto, Toa Baja. La ola rompe rapida, es bastante buena en temporada de huracanes y cuando hay un fenomeno natural. La mayor parte es arena, asi que no te dejes llevar por las piedras sobresalientes. Es un buen spot para aprender tambien. Y si no esta bueno, pues hay un monton de spots mas arlado de ese como: El Puerto, Shorebreak(El Caracol), El Unico, Palmitas, Sky Surf, Punta Salinas, Almejas y la boca del Rio de Bayamon. Si te dicen que en Toa Baja no se surfea, dile que estan bien mal.

Local de Levittown 1976-84 - I totally agree with Carlos. This was my old stomping grounds when I first learned to surf. Went surfing with 35 cents for half a pound of pan con mantequilla and needed nothing else. We used to spend the entire day riding both sides of the sewage pipe (no shit in the water - just rain water). On the left is Cochino's Bay and on the right with Piedra. When waiting for waves in between sets we used to eat live clams that were burried in the sand. Cochinos side had a nice right breaking right off the pier. Piedra was my favorite since the left broke of the pier and the guy closest to the pier got off in a hurry and rode all the way to the shore rocks. Another break not mentioned here was El Canal, which is the where the Rio de Bayamon meets the ocean. We encountered Tarpon (Sabalo) fish that were bigger than us. A few sharks once in a while came around when the water was like chocolate from all the rain. That did not stop us from surfing. We were invincible! Those were the days - just a group of true friends having the time of our lives. Saludos al corillo: Sunshine, Chobi, Willito Suarez, Socotroco, Frankie Velez, Frankie/Eddie/Danny Castillo, Wille Coast Guard, Ricky "BM", Rafi y Julio (Hardy Boyz), Rubi, and the rest that I cannot remember their names. Believe it or not - we held an official surfing competition at Cochinos Bay back in the day! Got the trophy to prove it! hahahaha
