Punta Roca is El Sal’s world-class pointbreak racing over shallow, black boulders in the town of La Libertad. Can get leg-achingly long on a medium S swell, with hollow, tubing sections popping up regularly. It’s a long paddle from in front of Bob Rotherham’s restaurant, but it by-passes the armed robbers who ambush surfers for their boards on the long walk out the point. It needs to be at least 3ft (1m) to break off the rocks, but it holds surf of up to 12ft (4m).
