Santa RosaEdit Spot
Another classic wave in this surfing-rich area. Heavy and fast it is worth a visit.
A fun and challenging wave. Sometimes hard to get to when the swell is big.
This spot works best when swell is West to North-West, a southerly swell will pass right by.
Although this is usually thought of as a Left it also has a good right. The wave can throw a fairly heavy lip, and as it is shallow water over boulders - care is required!
However, not one of the more dangerous waves in the area.
Take the turn off to Santa Rosa (poorly signed just before San Bartolo)
Santa Rosa is the last point before the dry river bed (after which you'll find the spots of El Huayco and Pena Rosa)
Park as far south (left) as you can - the parking right by the point usually requires a 4x4 to get in and out...but from the last easy place to park it is 2-3 min walk.
