Primo Tapia in Baja Norte is an exposed reef break that has reliable surf. Autumn and winter are the optimum times of year for waves. Offshore winds are from the northeast. Groundswells more frequent than windswells and the ideal swell direction is from the west. The reef provides both left and right breaks. The quality of the surf isn't affected by the tide. Even when there are waves, it's not likley to be crowded. Take care of urchins, rocks and private access.
