In Panama, Go to San Blas by plane to Cartí, by Car new road use a 4x4 Full equiped or by yatch, stay at the last island, Wichupupoo Pee pee, talk to the Kuna, they know where the big waves are.
In the island, stay in a tend or camping, bring everything, either a doctor if you can, swim or rent a small canoa, they throw you on the reef break , then swim, a lot or walk over the coral.
From the island you can see from very far away waves breaking all the way , chechk the spot looking to your right to the open ocean, if there is a ENE or Ne swell average from 4 feet plus, then you will see long rights breaking.
Don´t get confuse, it seems small, but when you get in, the wave is World Class, we surfed for the first time one week ago, on the morning 4 to 6 feet, on the afternoon, 9 plus huge waves.
They break over the coral and then rolls in to open ocean, Perfect Open Barrels for only experienced surfers.
