Need specifics for all the super secret surf


I'm a total kook but I embrace my kookness.

Anyhow, I spent a month last winter in El Pescadero and got in 23 days and was happy with my progression. I'm planning on driving down solo in November and staying through January. Any help on spots along the way south would be appreciated. Not looking for the super secret surf but just a comfortable beach break where I might find good camping and other surfers.

I saw the Baja surf guide book on Amazon. Any good?

Any other advice? I've driven all over mainland Mexico and southern Baja but not much in northern Baja. The advice I've received so far is cross the border early and get as far south as possible on the first day.

Thanks,

Tim

P.S. No snarky comments on how the "Baja is closed", "there is no surf" or "beheadings". I put up with all you out-of-staters clogging up my trails and campgrounds here in Idaho. You can put up with one more surfer. Give it up! :P

Sounds like reasonable questions to me.

Hopefully some people can help him out.

Oh if that were only true... :lol:

To tmtuttle:

1) I am not a surfer, but I love beaches and swim and body surf.
2) I have NEVER listed a 'secret' or any kind of surf location as a 'surf location'. Only beaches and camps I come across.
3) I love backcountry driving and am making a series of road logs this year to give a hint of what's down many of the roads off the highway, in Baja.
4) No guide can ever tell all that is in Baja, it is just so great a place and it changes, as well.

To share in advance of the guide's publication some of my travel notes, go to the Baja Nomad Trip Reports Forum http://forums.bajanomad.com/forumdisplay.php?fid=50
and see the trip reports titled TRIP #1 to TRIP #6 (so far).

The region of Baja that I call The Remote Pacific is better known as The Seven Sisters and if that is of interest to you, those roads were in TRIP #4 (April 2017): http://forums.bajanomad.com/viewthread.php?tid=86376

My trip to Pta. Abreojos, Bahía Asunción, Pta. Eugenia is TRIP #5.
My drive to Punta Conejo and Punta Marquez (near La Paz) is in TRIP #6.

As always, I am happy to share my Baja travels with others so that they can plan a most excellent adventure.

Pedrito is great and locals are friendly as you've probably found out. Pastora is 1/2 hour N. of Todos (on the Otra Lado) and is considered the big wave break for the area. (I wear a helmet there now after my head bounced off the cobble bottom.)

Conejo is an hour North -- may/may not be breaking but fun waves.

South is Cerritos with a sometimes narly beach break -- the point has a take off next to the rocks and local short boarders have this wave nailed.

Cape is Summer breaks.

All this stuff online.

Have fun. Keep surfing.

Not really a secret when most maps have the little surfer symbol along the coast.

The only not too secrety surf spot I know is the one just north of Santa Rosaliita. By "THE WALL"

I have driven by a few dozen in my dirt road travels along the Pacific coast, and wondered why there were no surfers there. I kinda wish I would have brought a board. But the purpose of my trips were exploratory, a lot like DK's trips.

One if my favorite photos from a secure, undisclosed surf spot. Bay after bay, and point after point, sans humans, just like this. Choose your poison.
