Los Capaes in Guayas is an exposed reef break that has reasonably consistent surf. Spring and Summer provide the best conditions. The best wind direction is from the southeast. Groundswells are more common than windswells and the best swell direction is from the northwest. The quality of the surf isn't affected by the tide. Even when there are waves, it's not likley to be crowded. Be wary of rips - they make surfing here dangerous.
