    What are the best left hand breaks

    This question may have been answered but here goes.

    Everywhere I have looked to research on west coast of PR looks like a right hand reef break.
    Are there any good lefts west cost or North coast?

    Also,
    Is La Selva a good break?

    Thanks,

    Yes, it is.

    La Selva is The Jungle. where's that?
    The best in CR is Boca Barranca and Punta Mala.
    In NC, used to be Hatteras jetty and between the point and frisco.
    False Cape, between Va and NC had a nice one.

    there are a few "right" reefs that peel both ways in PR, depending on the swell direction, I.e. Pools reef, Domes (the break closer to the lighthouse, not the right off the rocks), I even see some lefts ridden at wildo's occasionally. I took a left at Maria's and got a good fast ride, but ended up in a pool of sea urchins and other pointy things. Chatarra is a sketchy shallow left on the north coast. why you need lefts?

    Thanks for the info.
    Just not as good back hand with any size. And I don't want to bite it on the reef. Ive never surfed a reef, just wanted to be cautious.

    thank for your help though,

    OK, here goes..
    1. Got to Puerto Rico. Rincon, Puerto Rico.
    2. Rent a board. (Google Green Room surfboards, Rincon or go to DPSUP's guy)
    3. Go to Marias beach. Park below the Calypso.
    4. Walk out onto beach and turn left. (South)
    5. Walk down until the beach widens in front of Stu's place. (It's big and yellow. Save money and rent it someday. I did. Stu's cool. But I digress)
    6. Look for the wooden volleyball net posts. Enter water directly in front of posts.
    7. Sit in the deep water before the break and look for two big concrete-looking things sticking out of the water. Those are the Pistons.
    8. Watch the waves. Look for your left.
    9 Do NOT, repeat do NOT get out of the water south of Stu's place or you will end up looking like a pin cushion.
    10. You can also go to Marias near the point like Lee said. It has a decent left but you better bail before you get inside or once again, you guessed it, pin cushion.

    I went to PR for the first time last winter. Stayed in Rincon at Rincon inn. The trip was a BLAST. I would have liked to stay closer to Pools and Tamboo for the nightlife, but you really can't complain when you're in PR.

    Had a serious pincushion incident at Marias. You really have to ask/watch where to get in get out. Once you start getting down to that point where they were talking about, it's literally urchin central. I got a few and it really sucked.

    As for lefts, I think I took off on maybe 5 lefts MAX in my 10 days there. The only place that I got a few was domes. Granted, I really didn't hit the north west portion too much, so I can't speak for that area, but the majority or Rincon and Aguadilla is rights.

    Also... Have a great time man. Wish I was going back this winter.

    Nobody mentioned Sandy Beach yet? If it's working go there and hit the left right out in front of Tamboo, I've seen it barreling at 4-6ft+, easy access, rather safe compared to some other spots, and really fun, get on it early before wind picks up, unless you get lucky like I did on my first time down and it was good all day for 3 days straight
