Wrong Name - This place is called La Bocana, and the left is heavier than the right. When it is on at low tide going to high it will occasionally do a pretty good pipeline imitation, although it loses shape over 8 feet.

Change info - The place is crowded on the weekends, it is heavily localized, and the rock reef is pretty heavy, specially if you go right

Rio Grande - Sandy bottom? I guess you forgot those little rocky boulders.
