Los Cocos in Venezuela« on: June 15 2004 13:06:00 »
Los cocos is beachbreak, but mainly a left hander off the jetty! It resembles Sebastian Inlet but a left instead of a right! So it is a wedgy, sucky left that when is good barrels and It could pin you down on the bottom (it does't look like that).
Locals could be aggresive, so stay out of their way for your own sake! Best with light off shore winds or west winds.
One of Venezuelas real core spots!

Los cocos features both lefts and rights, being the lefts very potent and frank waves, in the sense that cue you to ride them in the classical way, that is, no late take offs (most of the times) and begs to be bottom turned and shot for a powerful top turn as a first maneuver.
Green beautiful water, at times fairly clear, also a very short paddle out to the line up.

Beware of the long and super turbulent hold downs. Also the 2 wave hold downs a relity when short period swell hit this beach. Being a relatively small area of water confined between two rock jetties, when the faces overcome the 6 to 7 foot faces, these seem to concentrate the wave and really there is no "outside" to breathe and prepare for the next hence it can get scarry!
To me, a worldclass beachbreak, and best of the best!

I was fortunate to surf los cocos first in the late 1960's and many times after that thru the mid 1980's before the hotels went in. There was the macuto sheridan and the public macuto beach with the cocos to the east. Very good with a swell and west winds, the left is the marque wave even though there are rights to be had. Lots of underwater caves that create some bad rips. Yes, watch out for the locals, they rip!
