Puerto Escondido, Mexico


Puerto Escondido (or the Mexican Pipeline) is a beach break, but not just a regular fun beachie. It is the heaviest beach break in the world. When a swell hits Puerto, the ground under foot shakes, the men are separated from the boys and the local board repairers (and sometimes paramedics) are kept busy.

Puerto Escondido faces almost due south and picks up the same swells that light up Peru and Chile’s coastlines. The reason for Puerto’s ferocity is there is no continental shelf off the coastline. Instead there is a deep oceanic trench, pulling in the swell.
