The Past Comments - Its ashame that an old school surfer like me read this kind of crap from locals like me and for what... What do you proove, you got more cojones? Que nos pasa Puerto Rico. Do it with class and dont be a K-fre. If you were the owner I'm sure you wouldn't be surfing the boat. I have the privelage to live here and 4 years in Hawaii, and Im more convinced that people like you need to be chum for sharks. Se pasaron, Puerto Rico es de todos.

epic once - I lived in aguadilla for 3 years I caught this place epic once, 100 yard rides with sick tube sections. Local spongers are creeps, and there also numerous. Not only do they cut you off, at the beach they will rip you off. Not worth the hassle. its not uncommon for there to be 70 boogers here in one session. Gas chambers is just down the beach, surf at your own risk. I surfed it 8 feet and got drilled only to be punched by a local booger when I surfaced. Dont worry he got his on the beach, I still have his boogie board leash, sucka...I hate PR, theres tons of good spots but locals and agro floridians and VA beach kooks ruin it.
