 Additional Information

Easy paddle out when small, gets hairy when big. A happy alternative is to go in off the jetty (big jump) and paddle accross. A hollow wave, starts on sand bottom by the rocks and pulls hollow over some un-seen rocks.

Atmosphere

Easy going most of the time, but as it has a small take off zone, when it gets good it gets crowded, especially in summer when the town is a tourist destination. The locals rip, but are generally friendly if you show respect

General

Really neat place, with a great wave. Also you can surf around the pier as this holds waves and on the beach breaks stretching north from the village. Great seafood.

Altos y bajos (3 sessions) - Algunas olas estaban bien, pero había que remar mucho para estar en el point correcto, algo cansador. No fue la mejor session de mi vida, pero normal.

- this place shouldnt be listed as for experienced surfers apart from the take off which is a little hollow the wave is fat I would say it is one of the best learner waves i have ever surfed easy paddle or walk out learners should stick to the second section for ease of take off does not work very big after about 3 foot it breaks into or behind the peir i saw a sea otter there

recommended - we had a much better time surfing here than the punta hermosa area. it may need a bit more swell but the wave goes off, the town has a friendly vibe and has some cheaper eats and accomodation.

way over rated! - this place isn't all that. alwayse smaller than pta hermosa, and when the swell pumps it closes out or has such a pumping current that it just isn;t that fun to surf, not 4 stars
