About Surfers Beach (Puerto Rico)

Surfer's has a long right and a short, punchy left; the right is shifty, steep, down-the-line, and has a few different sections, making it ideal for scattering the ever-present crowd. NW swells make it more of an A-frame situation while N and NE swells create more of a right pointbreak effect.
