its quite a paddle out there and currents are strong. need to access from the east side, to the west is another wave that breaks close by and creates quite some current.
to be honest: i never surfed the spot myself, just watched friends go out there and catch some. big stuff, need a good drop-in technique. but like my friend fabien says: es una buena ola!

acid drop update/correction - Hi, just wanted to correct a couple of mistakes in your description of acid, the village close by is majanicho and the crowd is small but fierce with disrespectful in your face surfers, and considering the spot is km away from civilization it's dangerous stuff messing with them. Another thing is that at high tide it's another wave called calleta del buque. The waves are separated by 100m, la calleta breaks on the inside reef and it's a long, peeling vertical wall with a couple of mellower sections, a specific swell direction gives it a tuberide; acid drop comes out of the deep on the outside and just mutates into a pipe type wave at lower tide. Can't say more or they will banish me. :)
