Man, its cool to develop some spots. But the entire area? Where's the public acces? It's illegal to block beaches in hawaii from public access. Tell me, how good is this break really? how big can it hold?

There are access roads that you can walk on without much trouble, but you have to get permision to drive on (I dont think it is very hard). On one side is the development of Rancho Santana (whom I have never stayed with because there are less expensive accomodations down the beach that are quite nice)and on the other side is Iguana beach. The break is on Iguana beach "property" though the wave is public. The easiest way to it is either the Rancho Santana road, which you will not be bothered for walking on, or staying at Iguana beach. The break is pretty good. I caught it 6-8 last year and it was fast with some consequences. A good friend of my was a lifeguard at Playa Zicatela Puerto Escondido, and he said this wave had the potential to be simmilar with size (though not exactly as heavy). So you have my opinion, my friend's and a little run down of how to get there.
