Southern Baja wave sites?

Postby fearlu » Fri Dec 18, 2009 10:39 pm

If one is vacationing and riding in LaVentana and decides to head to the Pacific side for waves, where do you go to ride? Under what circumstances can you be pretty certain that the wind is better over on the west side? How long is the drive and when do you pull the trigger and leave for the Pacific?

Thanks for any input!
