 Additional Information

Its a rivermouth style, shifty wave, about 100m+ north of the El Zonte Point, over boulders and sand. I think it lines up better on high tide. It's mostly a pretty heavy right from 3 to 6+ feet, but has the odd left as well. The right can handle more size than the nearby point, it gets pretty big-up to 6+ feet (double overhead plus), when the point maxes out at about 4-5 feet. If it gets bigger it breaks way way out and sucks up fast, so don't get caught too far inside. Very rarely it can link up with the main point (I know because I have done it), and it does barrel on its day. There is one takeoff spot which barrels right from the takeoff, pretty far out the back, but it seems hard to find.

Atmosphere

It's a better wave than it looks, it breaks very hard and hollow and handles a bit of size on higher tides. A good alternative if the point is too crowded, as more average surfers don't seem to like the hollow, shifty peaks.
