Week crowdFew surfers
The wave throws over pretty quick but not too bad. Paddle out/in on the left of the break otherwise you will get sea urchins in every spot of your body possible.
I only surfed the spot twice but when I was there it was very light crowds, actually most of the crowd consisted of me and my bros. I came with a positive attitude and people would just come up and say "hola me amigo". Everyone was just real nice and welcoming but if you come with a bad attitude i'm sure bad things will come.
Once again I only surfed this wave twice but it was a real fun wave when I surfed it and I heard it wasn't even that good of a day so I can imagine it can get pretty epic.

Great day at Los Tubos - I live in California and had a meeeting at Hyatt Dorado. Rented a board at Kalichee surf shop. Had 2-5' Los Tubos with only 2 others out. Tons of fun...rights and lefts. Watch your steps going out and coming in....plan on a few abrasions from the rocks. This place must really be good on a bigger swell.
