    Much like it is in February.

    Watch out for the sandy beach breaks, boys. And get some bike riding exercise... the hills with a board will be fun!!!

If a house doesnt work out, we're probably going to try for a condo. Any suggestions or help is greatly appreciated!
    the best house to rent is the Tres Amigos Beach House. It's located right on Dogman's (the break next to Maria's) and has everything you need! check it out www.tresamigosbeachhouse.com, they have a video on there that shows the house and the location, doesn't get any better and you're centrally located for everything. They also have a calender on there that shows their availability. Good luck, let me know if you need any more info

    Petty crime (theft) is rampant, i.e., cards, houses, etc. Locals are increasingly becoming more hostile in part due to the crowding and growth of "surf schools and surf lodges" that cart people all over the place and into main breaks. And then there is the attitude of many gringos that treat the town people as something like feudal folks in their interactions, e.g., "hey, yo, where my sandwich. Wat wit yous?"

    Your best place to surf and to teach your friend is at Domes and Sandy Beach, or Jobos Beach on the north coast.

    Best airport to fly in to is Aguadilla, it's only like a 30 minute ride to Rincon from there. There are surfboard rentals all over, but your best bet is the surf shop near Marias(not sure of the name). I agree that Domes and Sandy Beach are the best breaks to teach someone. Bringing them out on a reef could be a little intense and even for your first time surfing these breaks, you'll want to feel comfortable before trying to make someone else feel good about it. Don't be afraid to talk to people out there, alot of them are transplants from somewhere on the east coast of the mainland. Don't paddle into a lineup in a large group, spread out or paddle out seperately. Paddling in a group could get you all abolished from all waves at that spot. Get on it early!!! I always stay somewhere looking at the ocean (Tres Amigos/Fish eye/Pools) so that the surf check first thing is very close. Rincon's nightlife is fun and can get out of hand easily, so keep that in mind after your 30th Medella(PR beer). Have fun and always know your surroundings!

    Agree with that last statement. Be aware of your surroundings. Its not that bad in Rincon per my experiences but the last time i was there, i was walking from fish eye to the breaks and theres a baseball field on the way down and some local people were having a birthday party with all the blow up slides n stuff...well as i was walking by i saw the event person reaching in his car for something and he had a handgun hanging out of his back pocket...at a childrens party!
    Another time i was really drunk at Calypso and some guys in my group had brought their g/fs and a group of locals came riding by on their horses and of course one of the guys g/f was all "i want a ride i wanna ride" and before i knew it she was hopped on and away they went down the street. I flipped out, like, **** shes done, going to get raped and killed. Luckily they brought her back a few minutes later.

    Anyway...definately be aware of your surroundings...also if you go to Jobos...dont say anything if a local drops in on you...just accept it. I got dropped in on and was about to hit the guy with my nose so i made a noise and a group of 4 puertoricans started yellign at me and made me get out of the water.
