Dangers

- Rocks

 Additional Information

Parking is at the top of a hill with a dirt trail down to the beach. There is a large exposed rock at the kickout zone near shore. On the left side of that rock is where you paddle out.
+
Watch out for the boils and rocks at low tide. If the tide is low paddle out next to the big rock. Do not put your feet down after a wave or wipe out due to all the sea urchins. Locals are pretty cool here. Nothing like the crew at Zippers. Watch out for the rocks on the inside...they will take your fins with them.
+
Main tip, be VERY aware of where the big rocks are!!! You will regret being careless at this spot, also keep an eye out for urchins. when I was there a guy was sent to the hospital after getting sucked over the falls onto a rock and came up with a back full of big urchins! Stay alert.

Atmosphere

When this break is reeling, the view from the trail will stick in your memory forever!

This spot is beautiful! Sitting in the line up you have a great view of the city of Cabo San Lucas and the arch. Also after a long great day of surf you can walk up to the hotel that overlooks the break and grab some ice cold coronas and think about the great waves you where just rippin.

General

The photo that is attached is a crappy day. I have surfed this spot perfect overhead with not a drop of water out of place and also surfed it on shitty days like this.

vacation - I'll be staying near Monumentos the 1st week of May. Looking for people to surf/hang with. Hit me up if you'll be down there around that time.

- I surfed monuments when I was 16 and it was a few feet overhead. I still have a pic that my uncle took of me getting one of the best barrels of my life. Great spot but sketchy, I got cut up on the rocks a bit and also got yelled at and my leash yanked by some local. (that day mexico lost to the u.s. in soccer) great spot though totally worth it. Dont go if the tide is too low.

Hawaiian Style - Surfed my entire life, finally got to surf Monuments on a good sized clean day. 20+ years of surfing and this place got my heart pumping just because of the rocks and urchins. Wave was decent, had a nice bulbous take off. Clear warm blue water, local guys were relatively mellow.
