- Rips / undertow
It breaks right off in front of the jetty on a solid swell. The only thing that can suck is the rip tide due to the steepness of the swell that is needed usually to get in for the spot to break. For that reason you can always catch a long wave and walk back up the point. Park anywhere near the beach Playa Gaviotas/Zona Dorada or get a taxi to Hotel Las Flores.
The beach can be crowded, but when there is swell you can score it with you and a friend out. Great setting with Deer Island/Isla Lobos right in front and the sun going down after an afternoon session. Grab a beer after at the Hotel Las Flores Las Rejas Bar on the beach, and think of the fun-rare waves you just got.
Scored this wave back in 2005 on a solid steep South East swell for two days straight with a good mate (4-7ft). On this swell I could even see waves coming off Deer Island and Kayakers riding them. Check out this spot if it is a solid swell and everywhere else in town is maxed out or if you just want to surf a lone or with a friend. The wave has some power to it and has some barrel sections when glassy. The swell angle though is very crucial to get in and reel down the steep point.
