Great waves, gets its name from the depth of the reef and size needed to produce waves, when it's on (4 ft +) the wave will barrel and stay open for a speedy 300 or more yards. Left only. Inches is one of the only summertime waves in PR, working when the trade winds blow. When the trade winds have been blowing for a couple of days you know it will be working. Southern hurricanes/storms that pass to the south of PR will also produce great waves for Inches. When it's on Inches is the longest left hand barrel on the island, it is our Pipeline!

New Picture - I hope to enjoy the two photos that I sent of Inches with a good swell. The beach is not Pipeline but in good days has a left epic wave. Its called Inches because have an inches shallow bottom.

Pipeline? Are you kidding me? - Come on! Pipeline? This is an easy peeling wave. BARRELS? WHERE? It is such a PIPELINE as my mother is Miss Universe.
Don't get me wrong, I went to school in the near town of Humacao, and have surfed Inches for over 30 years. I love the place... But Definetely it is not a PIPELINE
