It is located in the town of aguadilla on the west coast of the island. It is easy to locate because it is right by the west side's best known beach (crash boat). just ask for directions to crash boat beach. when you get there stand on the pier, facing the water and look to your right. You will see were the beach ends and the rock wall begins. That's were gas chambers is, right there in front of that wall.(remember this is a break that breaks about 6 times a year so dont be mad if its not breaking. But if it is you will have the ride of a lifetime in a tube that actually breaks in a oblong square shape due to the fact it throws the lip way-out with insane force; be very careful because there is a backwash and if it hits the tube while your in it, kiss your ass goodbye....

Atmosphere

This break has a pretty good vibe to it. It's a mix between the crowd and the crowd on the rock wall taking video and pictures and cheering you on after a good wave.
