About El Nuro

Just south of a tiny fishing village and long pier, El Nuro is more of a reef left than a proper pointbreak, which picks up N swell and can be a fun, high-performance wave with crumbling lips and forgiving cutback walls. Sand covered rock shelf and a lack of thick crowds makes this wave accessible to improvers.

There's more waves down towards the pier in the right conditions.
