Hed down to the balneario in 7 seas Fajardo and you'll spot the wave at the very tip on your right hand side. Walk about 25 minutes and bring sandals and water. paddle out is sketchy since the channel is about 10 feet wide but visible.

 Additional Information

spot is all class... super bowly left with a launch section perfect for airs... or stall it and get pitted. but beware of the reef super shallow and sharp. not very consistent though.ts a small wave break. Actually I like to go there when almost nowhere else is breaking except Aviones, because it is a wave magnet and will pick up any trace swell. The reef refracts the wave to make it double what the acutal size is, problem is once the swell starts to pick up past 4-6ft else where this spot is already closing out. Generally you can only surf it on a N- NE swell direction not any bigger than 2 foot overhead as the water is very shallow and the wave starts to close out. Though if that happens you can paddle 300 yards further down the outside reef to Racetracks which can be an amazing (right only) wave. Very Dangerous, very fast, very hollow that breaks 50 feet in front of a reef that comes out of the water along the whole wave. Anyway getting back to Milimeters depending on the prevailing direction of the swell it can be either a short right- longer left A frame, or a left only and slight longer ride. Both directions will give you a fast pitching take off in about 4 feet of water over sharp coral, with just enough time to do a quick bottom turn and tuck under the lip for about 2 secs before the wave starts to collapse and die out.

local - please dont write anything more about this spot or erase what you have written, especially if you are not from here (Lance), if you ever plan on going back...

- I forgot to add this in the last post. Surfing there is very relaxing and Zen like as it is amazingly beautiful, quiet (most likely it will be just you and whoever you go with and no-one else within sight). My friend John and I have a nickname for this spot--God's Beach.*****Tip*****Bring a gallon of water and a baby oil in a book bag. When you get out of the water, you can wash off the salt and have a drink for the long long long walk back after your already exhausted and thirsty. The baby oil is for the crotch area between the legs to avoid the rash--lol--serious it helps you will thank me. This tip also applies for the surf spots La Selva, and El Faro (both very long walks). Also if you know you will be getting out of the water around dusk pack mosquito spray otherwise you will be bled dry on your long walk and itching all the way home.
