Canoa in Manabi is a fairly exposed beach break that has consistent surf. Summer offers the favoured conditions for surfing. Works best in offshore winds from the east southeast. Groundswells are more common than windswells and the ideal swell direction is from the northwest. Waves at the beach break both left and right. Surfable at all stages of the tide. It very rarely gets crowded here. Watch out for sharks and rocks.
