Visitor reviews of Hotel Tecuan surf break

    I live a bit north of here and would never surf there as there are much nicer breaks. Nice place to camp and go fishing. Deep water right off the beach. STRONG currents.

    Tricky to nail perfection here.....a tendency on close outs, but a consistent break that will put a smile on your face from 3ft to 8ft (depending direction)....
    Swimmers watch out for currents.....
    Good learning ground for fast hollow wave.....
