SADLY, THIS SPOT HAS DESAPPEARRED because of the construction of an oil plant!!!
There is no road so you have to find it and then park your 4X4 on the dirt on the little hill fronting the break.
Help save this wave by going to savethewaves.org an oil company is planning to build here which will ruin the spot. Sign the petition to save it.
Super heavy and gnarly. For incredibly experienced people only. Bottom is only a few feet deep and covered in urchins. Watch out!

Hmmm... - I don't think we can get all hateful towards corporations for destroying our favorite spots and at the same time be Americans. America is and has been run by corps for quite some time now. Our lives revolve around them. From buying medicine from chains like Save-On and which was made by giant pharmaceutical companies and then returning home to our freshly stocked fridge full of groceries bought from a large grocery store chain- we are all in bondage to these places. To wine about destruction to the environment in areas that are relevant to us and then turn around support companies that endorse and commit just as atrocious environmental acts that we deem less relevant is not only hypocritical, it's completely ignorant. The real solution to not only saving surfing spots, but this entire country, is to rebuild our entire way of living. We need to break up the corporate monopolies, push for cleaner and better technology, and reinvest our interest in small business. This will mean sacrificing certain conveniences we have grown accustomed to and paying higher prices, but will inevitably help save our environment and this country. We need to stop this selfish one sided form of environmentalism which is a response to only a minor symptom of a much deadlier disease. This is much bigger than surf spots.

Please end the ignorance - For those of you who don't feel the LNG terminal at the spot formerly known as Harry's doesn't affect you, take a look at the coastline as you drive north from Ensenada and tell me that the view and coast hasn't changed for the worse? Now imagine that same scene playing out in your own backyard. Not that pretty. More LNG are planned up and down the coastlines of USA and Mexico so wake up and smell the coffee. Next time, it could be your spot or beach that is being threatened. In regards to those of you that felt we were selfish in our keeping the spot secret, SEMPRA had plans to develop this coastline long before any of us took of on our first wave there. We did not know about the development until their ball had been rolling for over 10 years. By that time, the momentum, power and money dedicated to making this LNG plant a reality for SEMPRA / Shell was too much to overcome. It is difficult to fight the amount of corruption, political strength and legal expertise they had on their side. Had we known about their plans 20 years ago, maybe we could have done something, maybe not. The lesson is be proactive as soon as you can be and we were. Unfortunately, it was too little too late but had nothing to do with our selfishishness of keeping the wave for our own enjoyment only. Thanks for listening and thanks to all those who fought the good fight.
