Short but sweet. - Not the longest point in Ecuador, but its got some punch at the takeoff. Shallow sharp ass coral! I Surfed it about 3 years ago, and remember there is a bitch of a hike in and out... Julio, Javier, and Wellington from Lopez, if youre still out there, give me a call, havent heard from you all in a while, hope the surf is good!
