It’s a very fast wave, but forms perfect barrels. Just be careful every time you duckdive, because it isn’t very deep!
You can park in the streets near the beach. Watch out for the rocks, 100 meters from the sand to the sea they are very close to your feet.
It is the best reef break I know in the Gulf of Mexico, it’s very fast, powerful and it creates perfect barrels.
It’s a good spot but you got to be careful on good days because the waves are hard to ride and the rocks are the most dangerous thing.
Take a helmet, jaja (just kidding)!!

Teahupoo Veracruz!!! - Watzup everybody!!! When it´s working, it´s a world class wave, it even look´s like teahupoo!! The wave is gnarly 100% barrell (ocasional doble lips), not for beginners!! Just imagine, a 6-8 ft barrel wave, 2 ft deep, a shitload of urchins, and a sharp coral reef lying under you!!Try it if you darePs. It only breaks epic 2 or 3 times a year, but when its on, its on!!
