El Valle in Pacific is a fairly exposed river break that has pretty consitent surf. Winter and spring are the favoured times of year to visit. Works best in offshore winds from the east northeast. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the ideal swell direction is from the south. The river break provides left and right handers. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up.
