The Break

Playa Izquierda is a powerful short left reef point break. Waves are fast and often closeout, leaving a wild reputation of injury for those willing to take them on. These waves are only recommended for advanced surfers with shortboards and mini-guns. Waves are inconsistent with best conditions between May and November.
