The easy way to paddle in is to stay close to the jetty!
This is a very good wave after a hard north wind or a good swell, it only takes luck and be cool whith the locals.......if they like you, they will show you better secret spots and the parties of this beautiful city.
It's very cool and easy to learn, and when it gets good anyone will be having fun....except the beginers of course.
This spot is a classic in Veracruz!! Destapa rules!!!

This is the Waimea Veracruzana - Aloha gueyes ! well this is a nice beach and if you are a noserider you are in the right spot for it, the waves are very good to do some bottom turns, spinning up the nose, hang tens, cut backs, headstands, and more. it's also a very good place for shortboard and bodyboard. rights and lefts make this place an awsome spot to have fun, even better after a good norte (north wind) or a good swell, and if you are lucky...maybe you'll get caught in a tube or two. do you wanna see more spots around here to have fun? ask to the local guys about: Marti, Garlics, El secret, Mocambo, Ica or Camaronera banzai. See ya in the water and good waves.
