Suck Rock

Nearest break at 0.6 miles

Also known as Rocamar. Suck Rock is a powerful and crumbly, sometimes barreling, short to normal right point break. The break works well at all tides, but it is best at low tide. This is easily considered a local favorite and one of the best waves along the beach. Shortboards, bodyboards, and funboards are all good here. Consistency is year-round.
