It is mainly for bodyboarding. Lots of close outs.
It's a nice wave, powerful and funny.

Going to check it out - Heading down to Mejia this weekend. It looks like it's going to be pretty big overhead all weekend w/ long periods. I hope there's some people down in the waves as I don't want to be out there alone. Looks like temp will be around 25-26C and water temp around 15-16C.
