Atmosphere

This is one of the classic surfspots in Ecuador and very close from Guayaquil where the majority of surfers live. So when on a swell and on a weekend/holiday it can get pretty crowded. 10-20 people. But there is no localism as in all Ecuador except for Montañita. Week days are uncrowded surf most of the time and certain swells and on weekends too!.

you notice how all the waves look blown out? - That's because 95% of the time they are as in all of ecuador. IF you don't mind surfing with a steady 10-20knot onshore wind, go for it. Maybe kite boarding is the key here...I live in Ecuador, so I know.
