    Need a guide November 16-18 in PR

    Hey,

    I'm a intermediate surfer--grew up in Honolulu surfing south shore waves--and I'll be in PR--staying in San Juan this coming week. I was wondering if anyone had any good suggestions for a guide in the area. This is a bit of a spontaneous trip and I've not had time to do much research so any direction would be greatly appreciated. I'll need to rent boards and would love to have someone who could show me around as well and work as a guide.

    I mostly surf fish and lbs in up to OH+ surf.

    thanks guys!

Hit me up private message n let me kno ur plans so i can take off of work. Ull have the best surf trip ever if u roll w me. Weve been getting sick swell the past couple of weeks n im sure its not going anywhere. So if u wanna surf isolated breaks roll w me if u wanna surf where u can show off n be seen get a map. Lemme kno n best of luck bro

    Drive out west to Rincon. Well worth the world class surf and chill/welcoming environment and surf scene. Give Ramses Morales a call. Look him up, he is undoubtedly the best guide on the island. Good luck.

    You could go to La Ocho surf shop. There is a fun wave there most days and it doesn't have a heavy localized crowd. There are alot of great waves within about 45 min drive East or West of San Juan but you should make sure your vehicle does not have anything of value in it as there are alot of opportunists around. Good Luck it is an amazing place but there is another side of the coin in PR. I hope it lands heads up for you bro.

    Stretch, how was your tour of the east coast? Did you have to fight anyone for waves?

    I am here in SJ right now. Surfed La 8 yesterday and it was fun with a chill crowd of about 10. If you're just staying in the San Juan area, rent a car and with a GPS you can get around pretty much anywhere. El Yunque rainforest is a must see, and is a 45 minute drive from SJ.

    Nah no fights. I had some really good sessions with some really cool people. Everybody remembered me from the **** i stirred up m got the humor in it and we had a blast. Back home and boy am i happy to b here. East coast really is a different wave than here and not really in a good way but regardless there was some barrels. Lets stir up sum **** eh?

    I was waiting on that call in Charleston. We had a couple good days mixed in there. Glad you had a good trip..... Sorry OP for hijacking the thread.

    You don't need a guide man, just got back from PR and it's really easy to get around, just rent a car and like some have said use a GPS, but you can't rely 100% on GPS in PR I found, it'll get you there 80% of the time, the other 20% you'll probably have to ask someone where to go, as the GPS won't be accurate all the time, missing roads, etc.,
