The Break

Mancora is a powerful normal to long left point/reef break. It has two defined sections that are longer and plenty of fun when the tide is high, although the tide doesn't affect the consistency. It's also a very popular break due to its beginner-friendly inside beach section. Shortboards and funboards are ideal here. Consistency is high year-round with the best conditions in spring and summer.
