 Additional Information

This is mostly a right, although as with all beach breaks it can break the other way if the swell is orientated differently. A short fun wave, which gets hollow when small due to the shallowness of the baech

- santa rules! with a small swell is often choppy and you need to go close to the rock by el cangrejito, on a medium swell it can get very good.You have to be a local to catch it epic,its not usual.Fast,powerfull and hollow. For spongers its good at any time,for surfing better catch it on changing tide from low to medium or medium to high, sometimes when its high theres a rebound due to proximity to the cliff(el cangrejito)and shapes nice tubes, with a little delay for the close out.When its big,be carefull with your board and with "Asiiweooon!!" and the locals that will surely charge on every wave.Peace.

BODYBOARDERS - this wave is PERFECT for bodyboarding

Wipeouts - HOLLOW. My local beach: wipeout, wipeout, wipeout, wipeout and wipeout, but memorable. It is harder to be outside the tube than inside. Be careful with your fins getting out. Very hollow and powerful. After you surf 2 days you start feeling more comfrotable with any wipeout. Training for wipeouts. If fast, you can create nice, high aerials and then brake your neck. On big days it gets 7 feet and very hard to get in. Watch for your kids because there are many drowns. Better know the beach before surfing it. Board braking beach. Surf it with at least 3 friends because its dangerous if you get caught by the current. Memorable. (surf it on winters, can get a bit longer than usual near the cliff, el cangrejito.)
