The Search Surf Guide

The Search in Puerto Rico is a fairly exposed reef break that does not work very often. Ideal winds are from the west northwest with some shelter here from west winds. Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the best swell direction is from the southeast. No reef break here. The quality of the surf isn't affected by the tide. Even when there are waves, it's not likley to be crowded. Beware of urchins, rocks, private and locals.
