They even kept this place secret for a awhile. I know guys that have surfed this place, they say it is insane, after you figure it out.

While there are no secrets anymore some of us wish the changes in Baja would slow down. Be it fishing, surfing, riding, and exploring.

When the "pond" has a price special and San O is about to go off, what is modern surfer to do???

Use the CA state rope tow and line up in the shark net zone @ San Onofre or jump in the pond??

I totally get this. I remember discovering how great kayak fishing was off La Jolla 25 years ago. Only a few did it. Then came the guys with big egos, and the internet. A few guys started posting, and soon it went from 5 guys out on a good weekend, to 50 guys out every Sat and Sun. Still good fishing, but not the same with the large number of people. Like Baja, it would have been discovered eventually, but the posters expedited the process. I can't get mad at them, just frustrated.

I am glad I got to enjoy Baja from the 70-'s through out my life, but always worry about what it will be in 25 years. Hopefully not another Cabo throughout the Sea.

I remember a neighbor of mine telling me in 1971, that he was done going to Loreto on his annual fishing trip because it was fished out! Sheesh. Must have been great then. Hopefully the Mex Govt will figure a way to keep it great and have jobs for the locals at the same time, but keep tourism in just a few big areas. On a recent kayak trip from Mulege to Loreto saw about two miles of gill nets. I reported it to Fonatur and they said it is legal if the fisherman have permit. Not much left on those reefs except smaller triggerfish. They can never take away the beauty or the sunrises!

It's all in the post #1. Share without giving out the location.

If that additional fun of "sharing" with potentially millions of people that you don't know and likely don't want to know, - if this is really necessary for someone's emotional health, - then share. But don't give out the location, including details on the background that might identify the place.

There is a slang term "crowing", eh? :)

It doesn't really matter if you share or not, as long as the location is difficult to get to (requires four-wheel-drive), or in Mexico, it will remain mostly vacant of surfing people.

The combination of being in Mexico, and bad roads to get to, has kept much of the Seven Sisters region the same for decades.

The paved road to Santa Rosalillita and the well-graded dirt highway that goes from there north to Punta Cono is the real enemy of human isolation, not photos, maps, or road guides. The region has been mapped and road logged since the 1950s and that has not brought crowds in. Plus, the surf there is seasonal. So, is it really so terrible that you might find another four wheeling surfer on the same beach that one weekend you are there?

I only wonder why it was okay for you to learn about the place but nobody else? Seriously, worry about road graders and highway builders and not Internet photo posts. The border will always be the biggest filter and the bad roads the final filter. If they get past those two hurdles, offer them a beer if they show up on "your" beach, you just may become good friends!

Since 1987 I've ridden MCs and driven 4x4s along that section many many times and I have never seen anyone surfing that I can remember. However I was not really looking for any surfers.

Grow young. It will help your soul and you'll be less cranky and won't fart as often.

This isn't about a specific place. Your empty place that you ride in August, will be a full of campers in the winter. Go to another point in the summer and everybody is waiting for the south, empty in the winter.
20 years ago there were single tracks from TJ to Ensenada, how many now?

Fishing Ensenada to Castro's was great, now what is it? Is it like it was?

Going to PT. Canoas was a trip most wouldn't take, the road was F'ed, now not so much.
Every time a truck or car drives a double tract it gets better, pretty soon it is a road. Some will NEXER GET THAT...

I get it BAJA IS CHANGING, some of us wish it would slow down. I also wish that those don't have any skin in the game would not promote places they don't know, they just drove past.

Goat. I believe that you are a self indulging, ileitis, that believes that others care or give a hoot about what you think. I hope you a nice day:)

I'm sorry you weren't the last one to find Baja.

50 years from now there will still be plenty to explore.
