Surf & Other Activities

POINT BREAKDOWN:

First Point:

First point creates the smallest, slowest, gentlest, and often shortest waves, but it is a perfect spot for learners to maximize their surfing potential through quality amounts of face time.

 

Second Point:

Second point receives most of the swells that come into the bay and therefore is the most consistent of the 4 points and usually the most crowded. Depending on the swell, Second Point is where most surfers visiting upon Scorpion Bay for the first time experience the ride of their life. The steady offshore winds create long, perfectly peeling waves that will allow you to cruise and play for well over a minute. The paddle back to the lineup can be strenuous, but the memory and prospect of more waves makes it well worth it.

 

Third Point:

Third point is for more advanced surfers because it can get fast and hollow. It is somewhat difficult to access due to the steep bluff and the lava rocks on shore, but it is the place of legend. When the swell is big enough, Third point can connect to second point, creating a ride in excess of 3 minutes long. There are not too many places on Earth where this is possible.

 

Fourth and Beyond:

Fourth point is also somewhat difficult to access and the form is not as good as the other 3 points. The angle of the point bends just enough so that the winds don't hold up the waves as they do at the other 3. When there is a swell and the winds are calmer, Fourth point can be just as good as Third and is usually less crowded.

Mark

Really enjoyed getting to know everyone. Good people, good surf, good food and great flight and accommodations. Definitely on my future surf trip list.

Bret

We had a lot of fun. Had some fun surf too. Caught the longest waves of my surfing career and arguably the best wave I’ve ever caught…a sunset session with just me and Paul’s son on 3rd point. Caught an overhead and rode it about 200 yards…I have a vivid memory of the wave with the sunset reflecting on it. A perfect surfing moment. I definitely plan on getting back down there at some point.

Derek

Staying at Scorpion Bay Hotel really made me feel at home, while at the same time being completely off the grid. It makes for a great combo!

Jim

We had a great time in San Juanico. The last week at the Scorpion Bay was awesome.
