 Additional Information

La Timba is a rarely surfed spot in a wave rich area. Long slow left and right lines. Very consistent, always something surfable. A shifty peak over a rock reef, no tubes to speak of. A long paddle from Playa Silencio. Rarely worth the effort but never crowded either. A great longboarding wave when it is working. Can hold big surf.

Atmosphere

A lonely spot...but a respite from crowds if you don't want to drive very far. Nice drops but lackluster shoulders.

Good surf session - La Timba is a good option in Punta Hermosa area.I surfed this spot last week with only 2 friends in the water,powerful waves with lots of water moving,a nice take off with a good first section,4-5 foot waves.After 2 hours of non stop surfing i was so tired I had to padlle in,surfed out!!!
