This is a really nice point break, but it is protected from all Northerl swells, so only works occasionally with more southerly swells, or huge Northerly swells that wrap in. The Swell size marked above is what is required for this to work, the wave size will be much less due to the protected nature of this point.
The day I surfed here, all West facing beaches (Guinch, Playa Grande were huge close-outs...
Very crowded when it works, not exactly a performance wave, more of a long-board wave.
