- Rips / undertow
You can drive south of the point of Lobitos around the small cliffs and park the car in fron of the breaking point (not for low clearance cars)
Better if you bring a helmet. The waves brake very close to the rocky shore and there are sharp rocks all around dispersed on a sandy bottom.
After Cabo Blanco and Los Organos, probably is the third most hollow spot.
Solitude with hollow & fast waves
Experienced surfers only. Take off is critical, rip could be strong, and very close rocky shore.

I FORGOT - There are two big rocks at the point break, you can tell wether there's low tide just by lookin' at them, when you can just the top of them it's mid tide, but when they're completely uncovered (like in one of the pics in this webpage, look back in the left) it's low tide. I add this comment just in case you don't know how to look in the "tide table or chart or graph" (tabla de mareas) i don't know how you people call it. As a said GO THERE AT DAWN-LOW TIDE-BIG SWELL.
