Surfing in Acapulco dangerous?« on: September 05 2006 19:09:00 »
I'll go to Acapulco during winter, during christmas time. I heard that surfing in Acapulco is pretty dangerous during this period specially because of sharks, and all kind of other dnagerous fish. I don't knwo if it's true I heard that from a cousin who went there. I have two boards, a 6'2 short board and a 7'2 fish tail ... what is the best?

Yeah !!! It only has the most dangerous tides and Jelly fish in the world. Not to mention on the Coral Breaks, you only have 6 inches of water between you and the razor sharp reefs. Not to mention the 20 swell that breaks consistantly over the reefs. Oh.... and then there are the sharks !!! Yeah, my frieind and I were out there last winter. I was having a conversation with him on how to cheat on your tax returns . I awaited on a ansere from him, but I didn't hear him. And thats when the water turned red. The locals say it happens everyday.......Just kidding !!!! It's probably safe
