El Escambrón in Puerto Rico is an exposed reef break that usually has waves and can work at any time of the year. Works best in offshore winds from the south and there is no shelter here from cross shore breezes. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the ideal swell direction is from the north. There is no reef break. It very rarely gets crowded here. Take care to avoid the rocks.
