used to camp here in the early 70's and 80's , punta blanca is a challenging wave that requires no enhancements just massive respect.

Love this spot, hard to tell, but I think it's a few hundred yards North from the point at k16. Beautiful colours.

It's really hard to surf this wave because it breaks over a slab of volcanic lava

Pretty sure K16 came from a road marker sign that indicated where the wave was, before this coastline got developed. 16km from where though?? Surfed spanish left all last week - this coastline was firing...
