 Additional Information

The shortest and most risky paddle out in world. Because of the size of the rock that waves wedges off of, you can't see when is a good time to go. You walk out in knee deep water (which is the takeoff spot) and just have to go for it and hope that a set is not swinging around the rock. Just pray.

- I loved this spot because getting out to the lineup was very easy. Just walk along the rocks and jump into the water once the sets pass. Very easy take off and even though it wasn't very big still stacked some power.

Jobos locals - The locals at Jobos, they're families own the business on the beach, several generations have grown up on the beach there, they don't have a ton of money like California beach families, are incredibly friendly and warm, despite having their beaches and waves being invaded every weekend by San Juaneros and Americans who treat PR like a 3rd world country. The rock at Jobos is almost off limits to non-locals, period. If the boys are on it, it's theirs, paddle down the beach. Give them that. When its empty go get it. If it's not, surf the peak over or be prepared to scrap for that peak. You can't walk onto a prime basketball court in Brooklyn and expect to play the next game. You gotta work your way up to that court. Its no different in surfing. Imagine the world invading your front yard everyday, leaving trash all over the place, taking up all the parking spots and cutting in line everywhere you go. I promise you, you surf Jobos with respect, you will have NO problems. Give them the rock. It's theirs. Thats all they want. That,and not to be dropped in on. Locals keep order at every spot. Be grateful.

locals are punks - i surfed this spot when i went to pr last january. there wasn't much swell but the trades were blowing pretty hard so by the afternoon a little windswell picked up that was wrapping around the rock into jobo's offering a wave better then any of the other 10 spots we checked that day. even on a day with shitty waves i still had an issue with a local in the water. the drift was bad that day so you had to sit near the rock to avoid being swept down away from the takeoff. i was completely respectful the whole time i was in the water, never cut anyone off or even came close, and was letting people go on waves all day. still, some punk local kid who was cutting people off left and right felt the need to tell me i had to move down the beach away from the rock. i was completely confused why he was hasseling me, and he took off on a wave right after he said that and then didnt paddle back out, so i just stayed by the rock. i met a bunch of really cool locals in rincon and had a great time hanging with them all week. theres just a small percentage of locals who are just jerks and will harass you just for being a gringo. obviously a little punk local doesnt pose a real threat, the problem is if he wasnt to all he has to do is paddle into the beach and tell his older brother and all his friends some gringo is bothering him and they will be happy to teach you a lesson. it has nothing to do with being respectful (though you should), youre gonna run into jerks at this spot, along with spots all over the world. just try to play nice and dont let the jerks win.

Play it smart - I read all these comments and cant believe how many of you have had issues there. If your a butthole you will get treated as such. Mad respect for the local. I've surfed this spot over several years and I seen people get hasseled but that happens everywhere timing is everything . Respect goes along way I LOVE JOBOS and I will vibe you so dont be a douche and know your limits.
