El Unico in Puerto Rico is a fairly exposed beach and reef break that has very consistent surf and works all around the year. Works best in offshore winds from the south southeast 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 angle is from the north. The beach break offers both left and right hand waves. It's often crowded here. Beware of rips, locals and pollution.
