It would definitely help but i see little rental sedans make it through all the time
I'll be there for 2 weeks beginning of Feb. along with the rip curl tourney at Jobos :) If it goes flat on the north shore I head to a spot called Las Dunas past Middles, pretty good early am. Last spot on my trip would be Guajataca Beach
A river comes into the ocean and it is always a wave but dumping ... yahoo!
Aguadilla, Puerto Rico,one of the best places to surf on the Island.
and of course for those who want to go off the path... check to the east of Surfers :)
1-5. it's funny how you have selected these spots before going, there are dozens of surf spots there that face all different directions with different bottom types. Just go spot some waves and go surfing. These 3 places you named will surely be crowded.
6. There is a sick waterfall in the san sebastian area (half hour from the nw coast). It's 3 tier and you can jump / swing off of two of them. PM me for directions, I can scan in the bar napkin directions for you.
Watch out for the rocks
Not as of last april. There are definately some whoop de doos and your car might bottom out but just drive slow and if it looks sketchy stay to either side and keep a wheel close to the side of the road. If it has been raining a lot it might be muddy as hell and a much harder drive. They smoothed it out a couple of years ago with a backhoe but the dam quads run up and down it all weekend making the whoops. If you go there bring a cooler with drinks and food and save the trouble of leaving every time you get hungry or thirsty. Sometimes there is a local who sell pinchos. He has a grill built into the back of his truck and cooks them right there. He also sells beer and sodas and its like $2 for a pincho with some bread on top, great deal if hes there but dont bank on him being there.
Don't be a kook avoid rincon. If you want waves and private breaks Www.houseofthedoggz.com and you can jump of the third tier of not only that waterfall but almost 40 other waterfalls within 30 minutes of Isabella . Book with locals
That vid should be required viewing for all surfers...
Beware of mother ocean at her worst..
Just remember this when you go to some tropical surf location..
and last but not least ...
GAS CHAMBERS want heavy? You got it.
Just surf where the spongers are
not to thread hijack but how is it in San Juan? heading there next week and hoping not to have to travel - I know its much better towards the west
