Bombing black sand beachbreak that can be every bit as intimidating as big Puerto Escondido. Pascuales rears up any S swell from deep water and bludgeons the beach with deceptively powerful peaks that constantly shift and shut down the paddling channel that was there a minute ago. Handles the big stuff when the local chargers and camping devotees crack out the pintails and play roulette. Smaller swells can be picture perfect, but over-subscribed to and humour is hard to find in this town where the morning session is the only entertainment. Take a spare board.
