Petatlan in West Guerrero is an exposed beach break that has reasonably consistent surf and can work at any time of the year. Works best in offshore winds from the north northeast. Groundswells more frequent than windswells and the ideal swell direction is from the south. Waves at the beach break both left and right. Good surf at all stages of the tide. When the surf is up, it can get quite busy in the water. Be wary of rips - they make surfing here dangerous.
