Head for San Cristobal island and just go to the bay and then look to the right where you will see a light post, thats where it breaks and you should see the wave if breaking. Just walk over.

This a very fast wave. A Classic and you have to be fast and in good shape otherwaise get the hell out of the water and watch!.
It may be quite crowded on high season Dec-to March. But if you surf well and fast you will be outrunning a lot of wannabes and just get your own.
Anyway, keep it cool and nobody will bother.
Respect to be respected.
Cool Very good Excelent
