General

It's a great wave, during the week and with a good swell you can surf with your friends all day alone and it's a good place to camp. There is a small restaurant at the point break now, so you can stay all day, camp, or rent a small, rustic bungalow.

Small crowds, but 8 is enough! - Surfed great waves at this spot but even a small crowd here is a problem. There were 4 of us, and between 4 to 6 locals at any given time and since the take off spot is limited, getting your share of waves can be a problem. You definately have to step up and get into the mix although the locals will surf every wave. They're not jerks, just surfers. Great wave though, but the take off is SKETCHY if your not used to surfing close to big rocks!

que horror estas "fotos" y "surfistas" - estas son las peores fotos de las olas de engabao con los peores principiantes surfistas nunca vistos el tal emilio ,d portalanza y otros nombres por ahi que verguenza para los ecuatorinos que pensaran la gente de otros paises pero engabao es mejor que estas fotos y de seguro hay mejores surfistas

one of the best in playas - With the wright conditions and very in the morning when the tide is down and its starting to rise and the wind doesn`t blow you`re gonna enjoy one of the most fun waves of playas. the entry when the tide is down is a little dificult but not a hazzard. Also about 2 pm the locals go out in their boats to fishing and they ruin the waves.
