Gene Bagley from United States
“La Lancha is not a point break as described here but a beach break (we'll fix this, thanks ed.) with some rock structure underneath. It is a right and a left and a very mellow wave suited to beginners. Because of this and the fact that it is a short walk in from the highway, it is frequented by many surf schools, making it very crowded. Expect 20-30 people in the lineup most of the time, with as many as 50-60 on holidays such as Christmas.”
