trinidad - The cars at the park have been getting vandalized and broken into ALOT lately. The locals are rural folk with guns, who are getting mighty sick of it.
Fair warning.

yea right - this "wave" can get ok but rarely does. usually just a bunch of slop. not three stars, try .03 stars.

- Calling this a surf spot is pretty generous. Beautiful place though.
