Isla Todos Santos, Mexico
Legendary world class big wave break located
on the Isla Todos Santos Island 12 miles off
is the biggest and best known break. Located
near an offshore canyon on the NW tip of the
Island in front of the lighthouse, the waves
are typically 2-4 times bigger here than Baja,
and reportedly can handle ANY size wave. During
the big wave contest there were 60 foot+ faces
are other breaks on the Island, including "Chicken's"
which breaks in the channel between the two
Islands, and "Thor's Hammer."
need a boat to get there, which can be rented
out from Ensenada, or La Bufadora. Usually about
$20/person is the charge. If you hang out at
San Miguel you can usually find someone with
a boat, or someone to split a boat with.
even bother going out there without a big wave
board/gun, the waves are heavy. The water is
also known to be extra cold out there, bring
your hood and booties.
