Week-end crowdFew surfers
this is the ¨crowdest¨ (5-8 persons) surf spot in all bocas. normally anyone can surf here, the reef is deep, the wave is easy, the lip is soft and normally throws funny barrels and both lefts and right waves...
and watch your steps entering, the reef is very sharp
a very funny wave, you can´t leave bocas without surfin this reef

PANAMA SUCKS too expensive and too crowded - Bocas is beautyfull but to surf is limited with few spots and the waves are small, if you stay in the city u have to go surf by boat, 5 minutes boat to Paunch reef is 8 dollars per person, iy u want to surf 3 times on a day u spend like 25 dollars only to surf, the locals take advantage because the roads to the beaches to surf are in bad conditions and u have to take a boat to surf. Bocas del toro is just a place to pass and go. there´s lots of places in Central America with better waves and less less less expensive. PANAMA SUCKS

paunch crowds - I just bought a house a couple of minutes from paunch. the crowd factor has gone up quite a bit from 5-8 people. was there from mid dec to mid january 2007. I counted forty people in the water on one day, and the average for the whole month was about 15 --20. the surf was good though surfes every day for three weeks, from double overhead to head high, it never dropped to small.defintely getting crowded. but still wort it. my house is small but close will rent for cheap if interested.
