English (Traducir este texto en Español): Ask for the directions to Escambron Beach, which is near the Caribe Hilton. Once you get to the public parking lot, pay the $2 daily fee and avoid the hassle of getting a ticket. When you get to where the surfers enter the water you will see the public beach to your right behind a long line of rocks, out in front of you about a 1/3 of a mile out you will see a very large rock, to the left of this rock is the break.

English (Traducir este texto en Español): The wave consists of a long steep mushy right wall (sometimes very long when conditions are perfect) with a 12 to 15 minute paddle back and a much shorter but sometimes hollow left with a 3 min. paddle back out. The break starts working well at 5 to 6 ft maxing out at 10 ft. Beware of sneeker sets, as the water depth drops off considerably only a hundred yards out, allowing large waves to come in unnoticed until too late and cleaning out the line up. Resulting in people ditching their boards in front of you as your duck diving (OUCH!). Also watch for the boil on the face of large waves coming, when you see this be prepared as this usually means a cleaner set is coming thru-- so paddle like hell!<br /><br />The wave that breaks on the east side of the rock is called Little Fiji, a fun left only ledging hollow takeoff, starts breaking 3 foot and can be ridden up to 6-8ft faces before it stops working. The take off peak is in 4 feet of water and then it deepens out making the wave back off and get mushy. Reforms again on the inside. Unless you know how to get thru the reef or paddle out with someoone that knows dont go. If will hurt you, better to paddle to the west side (La Ocho) and have fun.
English (Traducir este texto en Español): The spot has fallen out of favor with the younger crowd--typically the crowd will consist of surfers in their 30's and older that have been surfing this spot their whole life. So give them respect, leave your aggro attitude at home, wait your turn , smile alot, you will be rewarded with good times and good waves. Localism isnt a problem here but there has been a surfer or two that has been sent packing when they had the wrong attitude.
English (Traducir este texto en Español): When its not huge or breaking too powerful, its a great very forgiving wave for a beginner to take their surfing ability to that next notch.

Extremely Variable Spot - La Ocho is a deepwater spot that packs a punch. You may surf the inside (corona) going left or right. Tide affects this spot considerably. Best bet is to surf it when you know that there is a clean swell (one swell, upwards of 14 secs, and no more than 6-7'). these conditions yield breaking and pitching waves in the 8-10' range with sneaker sets that will pound you if you're out of position. I've surfed the outside (second corona) when it's 15'. Have seen this spot breaking at 25' with no one out as there is no channel. Make sure you bring a fast paddling board and a knack for the unexpected as the waves rarely break at the same place twice.
The amount of gremmies at la 8 nowadays and the unattended boards they flick about when it is bigger than 6' makes it a dangerous spot.

- No cheap places in sanjuan! If you want to surf the best spots in PR you DONT want to stay in the capital anyways... Now if you have common sense you want to stay in the western part of the north shore,there are lots of the so called "paradores" where you can stay without paying much. The best thing about these places is that, by staying there you are helping the local economy, that is fucked up right about now. We appreciate when you spend mula and it stays in the island. Warm people, less crowds and the best waves of the Caribbean. Look it up!!
