 Additional Information

It works better with low tide, but you can also surf it with rising tide. I don´t know about falling tide. Beware of the rocks, paddle hard so you don´t get caught between the rocks and the waves. From the start it´s a long wall, you can boost airs in some sections and go all the way to the beach in good days. The months of dec-april offer glassy conditions in the mornings and sunny weather.

Atmosphere

One plus about this spot is that you can stay in the hotel in front of it, the food there is great, there is always people in vacation and you can ask about tours like whale watching, snorkeling,etc. There are chances to see hotties around too. The most crowed that i haved surfed this spot is with ten people and with a macking swell, it´s really low key. If you want some night life action montáñita is half and hour south and Puerto López 10 minutes north.

General

I really like because of the nice surrounding, the quality of the wave and the crowd factor. Near spots are Las Tunas, Ayampe, La Rinconada, La Entrada and Montañita to the south and Puerto Cayo to the north.
