I am travelling to Mancora from the UK at the end of Jan for a few weeks. I am considering taking two boards is it worth taking a 6ft fish as well as my 6 2. What sort of size swell should i expect?

First off  your boards are too close in size. Mancora itself can be a top to bottom barrel at the top of the point. Then it can also be a mushy wave suitable for a fish. The time of year your going is probably going to be insane as for as waves I would pack a very good tube board first! All around this area has tubes! Now if your only staying in Mancora and dont plan on leaving then your boards will probably be okay. Dont forget this place is a point which can handle all sizes. Good luck with everyting and the locales rip hands down!!!!!! Some of them blow away all these so called pros from the u.s.
