The Search in Puerto Rico is a reasonably exposed reef break that only works once in a while. Works best in offshore winds from the west northwest with some shelter here from west winds. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the ideal swell angle is from the southeast. There is no reef break. Good surf at all stages of the tide. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up. Take care of urchins, rocks, private and locals.
