About Punta Ballenas

If Mancora is small or the swell is from the SW-W, a walk of about 5 min to the south will reveal Punta Ballenas, a left point that picks up a bit more swell. It’s usually a messy, sectiony wave and will close-out if the swell is from the NW or the tide is too low, but it’s much faster and hollower than the main point.

Not as consistent or crowded as Mancora, because it is for intermediates to advanced surfers and the sharp rocks are very unforgiving and close to the surface.
