    I'm leaving before you get here, but I might be able to give you a few tips. What part of the island are you guys staying on?

    Bummer when do you leave? We will be in San Juan and I'll have a rental car so I can venture off and find some waves.

    Yeah, I leave Saturday. Im not familiar with the San Juan area because there isnt really surf there but you might want to drive up to Isabela or Aguadilla. Both are fairly close, but you might need to do some driving. Rincon is a little far, but if you're up to it there are some really good breaks there. I've never been here, but I found this one wave on surfline you might want to check out: http://www.surfline.com/surf-report/...o_6702/travel/

    I found this map thing really helpful, check it out if you plan on driving out:

    Awsome ! Ya I wanted to stay farther to the west on the island but the wife didn't want to, so now I'll be driving more but oh well. How are the locals? Ive surfed Texas my whole life and really never had any issues with locals mainly because there's no wave worth fighting over . But I'm not an idiot I know there's a pecking order at the better breaks. Great Info thank you. How's the surf been?

    there is waves in san juan. la ocha is where most people go because there is usually always something breaking there. its in the section of town called condado i believe, to the east of old san juan. its a nice right that breaks over shallow reef.

    I normally dont bounce of the bottom , I have never surfed a reef break how shallow are these reefs. I keep reading about shallow rock and reef breaks and Im curious are u able to swim in these shallow areas or is it like 2-4 ft deep. I'm just trying to figure out what to expect and I know each break is different.

    They definitely get pretty shallow, so you have to be careful if you plan on surfing over coral. If you get cut on live coral you can get an infection. I've never surfed in San Juan so I don't know exactly how shallow it can get, but there are breaks in Rincon that can get as shallow as a foot or two.

    Localism isn't too bad in Rincon, just don't drop in people. Watch out for the boogie-boarders too, give them waves and do not get in their way. Places like Gas Chambers in Aguadilla are filled with angry tattooed boogie-boarders that will really give it to ya. In Rincon I would recommend Maria's, Dome's, and the point all the way to the left of Sandy Beach in the morning. The Puntas area of Rincon (Pools, Sandy Beach, Antonio's) usually gets blown out by 10 AM but the more West facing beaches will stay clean almost all day.
    If you need to rent a board check out Mar Azul at the top of the 413. They have great boards and if your car is small they'll hook you up with a tie-down for your board. Here's a link to their website: http://puertoricosurfinginfo.com/Sur...fing_info.html

  9. Thumbs up Isabela

    If you don't want to drive all the way to Rincon, Isabela has some nice breaks,Middels and Jobos, see more info at www.surfwestpr.com
