La Puntilla in Guayas is a fairly exposed beach break that has inconsistent surf. Spring and Summer provide the best conditions. Works best in offshore winds from the northeast. Tends to receive distant groundswells and the best swell direction is from the northwest. Waves at the beach tend to peel to the right and a right hand reef break too.. Rarely crowded here. Rocks are a hazard.
