La Puntilla in Guayas is an exposed reef break that does not work very often. Spring and Summer provide the best conditions. Offshore winds are from the south southwest. Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the ideal swell direction is from the north. A reef breaks left. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up. Beware of accessibility, rips and rocks.
