“Llorente Eastern Samar Rivermouth Surf Break

Llorente is a rivermouth sandy bottom righthander with a lefthander on the other side of the peak with heavy shorebreak on big days. The takeoff is a straight sloping wall with potential mini tubes on the inside depending upon how the sand bottom is shaped up. When the waves are small the long stretch of Llorente beach breaks can be surfed.

Surf Conditions and Surfing Equipment Required

When typhoons and super typhoons are sending in ground swells, Hawaiian style guns are a good choice on the outside points and reefs with their double to triple overhead plus sets. Also your standard short board will work fine too. When the surf is small, longboards to the new retro high volume shortboards is suggested to have fun.
