Does it break too close to shore or are there any quality waves that break further out like coming in slow forming very predictable good for long board peeling off consistently and not too difficult to get out. How does it compare to Boca Barranca or Pavones in Costa rica of Saladita in Mexico as far as wave quality?

Hi, I've not been surfing too long, but I was in Montanitas a couple of times. It's a long beach break, not too close to the shore, just your usual I guess, but there is the point as well, which had some nicer shaped waves. I didn't go too close to the point because of the rocks but they looked pretty good from where I was, and I got some that were pretty good, just for being close to the point. As for getting out it depends on the day I guess. it could be pretty big and heavy, but I think at the point you can also walk out along the rocks, so it depends on your skill as well, I didn't see any long boarders on the point, but it was mostly short boards in Ecuador anyway.
I've been to PAvones, but when there was no swell, but from what I hear I don't think Montanitas would ever be a really long, predictable wave like that.
Hope that's some help!

Thanks for the info. but fogot to ask exactly what month were you there and what was the water temp.? Did it feel plenty warm? And was it crowded in the surf spot.What about the wind? Was it real calm early morning or light offshores or what? Thanks
